Silly Sunday

and now... Design Wall Monday!!!

Yesterday was our Quilt of Valor sew day. We had a new venue - the Trinity Quilters invited us to use their sewing rooms.... we are MOVING in!!! Those rooms are THE. BEST!! They have absolutely everything anyone could need, including a pastor that brings snacks!!

We had also invited the University of Northern Colorado Softball team!! AND!they came!! They were the nicest bunch of athletes EVER!!! We told them about our mission and they dug right in!!

Each veteran had 2 to 3 rookies

We started them on making rail fences

(below ) this is Head coach Coach Easley 
She was a master!!

They learned on all sort of machines - I think this one was the newest 
and of course the one we all wanted LOL

This is Assistant Coach Kies.
He was mastering it too!!!

The girls told them if they got sewing machines for the bus
they could get a lot more done while they were traveling!


As the blocks were rolling in, we started putting them up on the design walls!!
YES PEOPLE - there are THREE design walls here!
You want to move in now too - don't you?

Enough blocks were made that we got one top completely finished ( although it is in my bucket so photos later) and enough for 4 more tops!! Quite impressive

Here is most of the group - I noticed a few are missing - or maybe they are hiding?
For other design walls head over to

PS - if I read the schedule right the first home game in March 27th!
We will be there!!!

How fun! Bring some squares of fabric and fabric pens and have them all sign for additional labels on the quilts.....
