Quilt of Valor inspiration

Today's quilt show is better late than never!!! We are having such a great time, but are on the go!!  After VBS was over, we helped a friend change a tire, and by We - I mean that my oldest boy used his muscles and I watched... and then our friends husband came and finished the job.

We came home and I headed downstairs. I prepped a few Quilts of Valor for binding this weekend, as well as a bunch of 2 1/2 inch strips for a block party!!

Let's get to the show and tell.... From the Northwest Suburban Quilt Guild come these 4 lovelies

I love the blues and tans and reds - makes this such a comfy quilt!!!!

Check out this design.... Such a great way to feature the stars!!

And this one. I love these stars too. Such a beautiful combination!

This is the last one from the NorthWest Suburban Quilt guild, They do such a great job, and I am so grateful they want to help honor our veterans!!

The next two quilts were made by Adele D in LA. These are her 4th and 5th quilt for our 12 in 12  Quilt of Valor Challenge.  - Aren't they awesome!!

I like the way she used the plaids here!!

The last two in our Quilt show today come from Jessie C in LA. I think these were mystery quilts from the MysteryQuilts4Military YAhoo group.

Jessie - they are wonderful!!
Thank you, quilters, for your time and energy, and your talents!! These Quilts are so greatly appreciated!!   Hope you have a quilty week!!

I love getting new ideas for quilts from your blog. Problem is, there just isn't enough time to get all of those ideas done! I have too many things on my to do list. Why do we have chores? I need a chore fairy. Can I borrow your boys for a month? Nevermind, they probably eat a lot!
