Good Monday Morning

I know a lot of people don't like Mondays - but I am telling you if you saw what was waiting for me at the Post Office - you would TOTALLY change your mind!
Good thing I had no kids in the truck!
These first two quilts for the Warrior Games are international quilts. They are made by two quilting sisters, Sandi and Karen: one in New Jersey and one in St Croix. They get together a couple of times a year and sew these awesome Quilts of Valor. If I remember right their Long arm quilter is in England??

They have a daughter/niece that they have convinced to join them and start quilting. and the next quilt ( in the center) is her FIRST Quilt of Valor. Laura - you did an awesome job!! and I love string quilts.

The next Seven quilts come from the Heartstrings Quilt Project. I believe Mary ( quilted them all! But they were made by various members. This group has been so wonderful in our efforts to do Quilts of Valor. They have helped with pillowcases, quilt backs, quilts, and TONS of encouragement. A group of nicer people, you could not meet!

Now after enjoying all this quilty eye candy your monday will be as happy as mine! Off to work....

It's always a pleasure to help out with the soldier quilts Alycia. You're so wonderful about sharing information about where they are donated and how they were received.
