Quilts of Valor 2014

I hope this week finds you enjoying your summer! It has been HOT here... more so than we like. Keeping all the animals cool has been a chore!!

BUT!! I have some fabulous Quilts of Valor to show this week....

These are more awesome Quilts from the Interfaith Quilters of Longmont!

This one is called Peach and Goodwill. How many of you name your quilts? I am finding myself doing that a lot lately.




This one is called Circles of Faith.... do you LOVe it? I do!!



This one is called Stars...  I think it need a little more pizazz to the name... suggestions?


And of course - a LOVELY smile thrown in for good measure. This is a Jar quilt - and he fell in love. All the goodies in the jars just made him happy!!



This one is called Stars and Stripes forever.  I like this pattern - and I have a lot of 9 patches .... I could do this!


Another one called Stars...  You just can't go wrong with Red White and Blue



This is called Freedom Stripes....



This one is called United we Stand


And the last one.... is Sampler


Sorry about the Sun Glare here - but this was the photo spot.... She fell in love with the Log Cabin  - it had an eagle center panel in it.. and wow - she was ready to take that one!!


the Pueblo West Quilt Guild here in Colorado are Pillowcase making machines. I so appreciate them! They make sure each of our QOV's have a pillowcase to keep them all clean and safe for our Veterans.
 Thank you all for stopping by. Hope you found some inspiration!

Once again a beautiful quilt show. I never thought of doing a jar quilt as a QoV! I really like the first quilt. I may study that one and figure it out.
Thank you for all you do!

Thanks for the great show, Alycia. Great quilts. Yes, I name all the ones I get to label. Sometimes my long armer finishes them, and I don't know if she names them or not. Hard to keep coming up with original names after all this time. Certain words keep cropping up.... America, Stars, Eagle, Valor.... wonder why?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Peach and Goodwill - each and very successful use of scraps! I might HAVE to make this one!

Yes, I name all my quilts - even if to be given away.

I am so thrilled with the variety and selection provided to our deserving veterans. It is such a privilege to enjoy and learn from each other as part of the QOV sewing team !
