6/26 Quilts of Valor

Good Morning!!! It sort of feels like afternoon - I was up at 4:15am, for no good reason, so I decided to put it to good use!!!

I quilted.

It was awesome, and quiet, and cool.....  great way to start the day!!

For todays Quilt of Valor show I have 6 quilts to show you from Ros!! She quilted ALL of them, and pieced three of them!!  LOVE it!

Aren't all of those fabulous? They will definitly be loved!!

This next quilt is from Charlene T from San Marcos TX. It is called GLINT - it was a mystery at the yahoogroup called Mysteryquilts4military.  Search for it and join in - they are getting ready to start a new mystery. Nancy - the designer - does a FABULOUS job!!

This second one is from Charlene T as well - it was a mystery called Gettysburg.  It is quite stunning! I think a lot of time when into it!

And!! Check out all these fabulous Pillowcases!!! These are from the Pride City Quilt Guild in Colorado. They are down where all the fires are, and I am sure they are covered with smoke.
Before you go - hop over to these two posts -  Did a block drive for us at their last quilt show - and we started working on the tops Sunday.

And check out  This is Kevin H's QOV - a Bonnie Hunter Mystery. You will enjoy the eye candy - I promise...

You all have a wonderful week!!!

Wow, what a great group of quilts and pillowcases.

My friend and I have made pillowcases. Would you be interested in them? They were to go to Soldiers' Angels, but since we never got a reply that they received the last shipment, my friend is hesitant to send more. They would only be pillowcases.

Those are wonderful! I've gotta try the strip type. I made one block once, and I didn't do a very good job of picking colors, I guess. I should pick 2 plus white, and that'd keep it easy. Thanks for all you do, Alycia, for the soldiers and for us.

They are all wonderful! I love how scrappy they are.....particularly the rainbow quilt, and Gettysburg! Wonderful work everyone!

I just had the privilege of talking to a vet who received a QOV. He said it is a much loved quilt and he has kept the letter that came with the quilt so he know it was pieced by a woman in Wyoming and quilted in Nebraska. It is really important to document these quilts and the people involved. Just sayin'.

Another smashing quilt show! Roz is a whiz and both piecing and quilting. I always look forward to your QOV shows because they always get the juices flowing. Stay safe.
