And now a word from our Sponsor:

"Thanks for having Clothworks( as part of the block drive! We love seeing charity quilts get made and are always astounded and warmed by the generosity of quilters.  The fabrics we are giving away today are little mixer of a few collections that would make a wonderful warm quilt.  Thanks everyone for giving your time to this great project and happy sewing.  To see more about Clothworks, check out our blog, The Works ( or head to our website ( Best wishes to all of you."

Be sure to go and check them out - if you are so inclined - Thank them for helping us to show our thanks to our Veterans through a quilt!

Check out this Veteran!!  This is VF. He did two tours in Iraq. For a total of 22 months. During my first tour of Duty, I was a machine gunner on convoys. I conducted over 150 convoy missions, providing security for a variety of vehicles. Now VF is totally paying it forward and working with the ParaOlympics - too cool right!

As we are getting the blocks we are trying to get them all designed on the wall, and put into sets, ready to put into a top at our next sew day. I will keep taking pics of them up on the wall..... but I need some more days in the week - okay??? (grin)

Remember to thank our sponsors!!! Check out their sites !

I worked on blue & yellow blocks over the long weekend and am loving them! They look great up on the design wall, so I'm looking forward to seeing all the finished quilts.
But I will wait until the end of the project, or until I can fill a priority mail box, to send them, whichever comes first.

Wow Alycia! You do such a fantastic job for QOV. I just popped up your blog to review the directions. Getting ready to cut up fabric into little pieces and stitch them back together into QOV blocks. Back in school and NO time to stitch makes one a _itch! I need some creativity time!

Some beautiful quilts. What can we say about VF - Thank you, Sir! I don't know what the Para-Olympics is, but I'm thinking it's events for disabled folks. I applaud your efforts there, too. You both do great deeds for humanity.

What a great star for this wonderful QOV show! VF should be very proud of what his service in Iraq and continuing serice with the Para-Olympics.

Those blocks are certainly beginning to pile up Alycia. Great job ladies!
