Quilts of Valor from Colorado

I told you I wanted to brag - and I really want to show you all the Quilts of Valor that come thru these doors.... just so you know - these were here... and are now with soldiers.


This one was made by Molly in Montrose, and quilted by Anna Marie of Greeley. I LOVE the center string color... totally ties it all together.

And the back - is that not cool?

This quilt was pieced by Sue of Colorado Springs, and quilted by Donna of Monument CO

This one was made by Jessicas sewing group, it is inspired by a quilt in the collection of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, and can be seen at the QuiltIndex.org

It was quilted by Donna of Monument too. She is a retired Lt Col, USAF.... I love her!!

This quilt is from the Miracles Sewing Group in Denver, and quilted by Mindy M of Colorado.

Heres a close up - Mindy did an awesome job!

This quilt was pieced by Miracles as well, and quilted by Merrie J of Denver.

This one was made by Charlotte of Pieceable Friends Quilt guild and Quilted by Merrie J of Denver.

Gorgeous QOV's!!
My hubby was the recipient of one, (not from you) when he returned home from his last deployment. As a quilter myself, I was touched at the generosity.
Keep up the good work, you are so appreciated!

Once again a wonderful show of the generous nature of quilters. The quilts you give to the vets are always such samples of care and compassion. Thank you for making this a reality.
