Warning ** Picture Laden Post**
We have finished so many Quilts of Valor recently - I am so proud of all of us. And I am so grateful for these beautiful quilts to bring love to our Veterans!
Are you ready???? Got your coffee? Hot Chocolate?? Bowl of Cereal?? Here we go...........
Next we have a string quilt that was a block of the month at my Quilt Guild. We think that Joan Quilted it - but we aren't entirely sure - so Joan.... Your getting credit for it ;-)
This one was made by Nancy A in Colorado. Nancy won the strips from a giveaway on the blog, and she sent it back to us - it was a little shy of the size so Mary added borders, and then Sandy D in Eaton Quilted it. Isn't that cool - team effort!!
This stack n whack!! We were sent the colored pieces all cut out, and I layed a block out on my design wall. Mary M said she would really like to put it together - so she dug through our fabric stash and found the complementary fabrics... She stitched it up and Liz T.D took it to quilt! LOVE it!
This Quilt is one of our Block Drive Quilts!! Aren't they so fun to see get put together? I really think Karen put this one together - but I have been known to get a little overwhelmed at our sew days. Oh! it was quilted Liz T.D.
And again - another a Block Drive quilt! Quilted by Liz TD as well!. It is just so fun to see how people put them together!!
The next two quilts were Pieced by Marty O of Ft Collins! So! The guild that Marty belongs to invited me to come see the quilts that they had made for Quilts of Valor. They were awesome ( Pics will be coming - Promise!!) And Marty asked if I might have a connection to a Machine Quilter. Liz ( Bless her!!) said - oh sure - I'll get them done....
And Voila - She did!! Both of them!!!
Can you handle one more photo??
Oh my - the happiness.... the love.... the feeling of being cherished.
