Quilts of Valor 2014 - end of April

Can you believe that today is the last day in April?

I am shocked...of course, our temps have been cold, and we have had a lot of wind - so maybe that is just confusing me. Nothing compared to those to the east of us. Wow...

Today's Quilt of Valor show is FULL of inspiration and Eye Candy - so sit back and Enjoy!

We get to spend a lot of time on post - this is the Warrior Transition Battalion. They are our injured soldiers - getting treatment and learning new skills. It is such an honor to spend time with these brave folks!

I tried to use the captioning button this time to label the quilts - let me know what you think - or if you can tell a difference.  We met Sunday and sewed like crazy - I think we had 4 finished tops, and 12 quilts bound. my little guy sorted all the scraps. I now have 3 huge bags of small scraps...

Enjoy your week!!

Bags of scraps. What fun! So many pretty quilts. Great work!

How wonderful it is to see one of my QOVs wrapped around a brave warrior's shoulders! Just a few more days before I can put weight on my quilting foot and get back to making more QOVs. Can't wait. Thank you for such a nice morale booster. As always, it is inspiring to see the Wednesday QOVs!

Fabulous as always!

They are all beautiful! I always make my QOVs in red/white/blue. Do you see a lot of warriors choosing quilts in other colors? I sure have other fabrics! LOL!

It is great to see another one of my quilts wrapped around the shoulders of a deserving warrior who is on his/her way to getting better. I love seeing who receives all the quilts, but especially the ones I made. The first picture is my "Moth in the Window" quilt made from a Bonnie Hunter QM block. All the quilts are wonderful.

That's one thing about scraps, they just get smaller.
Love the show, and the smiles.

You and your crew are such a blessing, Alycia. The quilts are all made with love and looking sew fine! The happy faces of those draped in them show all the hard work is greatly appreciated.
