Good Morning!! Are you all ready for this weeks online Quilt of Valor show?
I have a little story to tell... especially about this quilt ( below)
This quilt was made by Judy V in Thornton ( or as I like to say - Broomfield). I got a call the other day about a specific lady veteran who was struggling. I won't tell you a lot - that's not right - but I will tell you that I LOVE that they know where to find us!!
I met her for lunch. I sort of walked in with this specific quilt tucked under my arm, and sat down with her. We talked for a while, and then I decided it was time to present her with this quilt.
It never ceases to amaze me how the right quilt finds the right owner. As I talked thru my little spiel, and unfurled this quilt, she was amazed. They are her FAVORITE COLORS!!! Don't you love it!!
Not to be forgotten - these other three Quilts of Valor are made by Judy too! This makes 12 in 2012 for Judy V!! Way to Go Judy!!
Anyone recognize this one? ( below) Here is the pattern- isn't hers wonderful??
Judy found this one on Moda Bake Shop - Hopefully she will comment and remind me of the pattern name...... I will admit - I forgot....
Thanks Judy for your wonderful quilts!!
These next two beauties come from San Marcos TX !! Charlene made these and they are lovely!!
I think these were both Mystery Quilt patterns ran my MysteryQuilts4Military @ Yahoogroups.com - They run great Mysteries over there!!
Thank you Charlene for these beautiful Quilts!!! They will be treasured!!
This Great Strippy Quilt comes from Marilyn in MO - I love the little pieces in between the longer strips - great idea!!
This next beauty was made by Norece. I think I am in love! isn't this just beautiful. As a matter of fact - it is on my sewing table right smack now, getting it's label put on it. Veterans need to know that Norece made this one - and LABELING is Very Very Very important!!
The next four quilts were made by Sue E in Arizona. She is like the master AccuQuilt Go cutter person and makes the coolest quilts. I think this one is the Blue Ridge Beauty pattern from Quiltville.com - and they were scraps she cut using the go cutter!!
This one is a MysteryQuilts4Military quilt pattern too - great huh!!
I believe this one is Marjorie Busby's QOV Pattern ( Sue if I have them backwards let me know!!!)
And this last one is one that Sue designed in EQ7 and used her go cutter for it.
And the last picture for today - Blocks!!! From Barb in NJ!!! I love these blocks!!!
Hope you all enjoyed today's show. I know it is a busy time of year, but I sure appreciate your time!! Have a great day!!!
