Good Wednesday Morning!!! Hope you all have had a great week!!
I gave a little sneak peek of this next quilt on Facebook yesterday – and promised the whole story today.
I am not sure how many of you have followed me for while? But! Some of my quilting students are now getting old – of course, I am NOT!! The following quilt… the Quilter – we will call her KJ was in one of our 5th grade QOV classes. She did a great job then!
She is an avid horse lover, and in one of my buckets- I found some great Horse Fabrics. I asked her Grandma if she thought KJ would be interested in making a Quilt of Valor out of them.
She worked with her grandma all summer long, and at the beginning of the school year – she gave me a top! I quilted it up and brought it back, Last Sunday we (please know – a real binder – Not me) taught her how to bind! PS – she is a Junior in High School now!
The next quilt was made by Sue S and quilted by her Sister in law JoNell. I just love a quilty Family!
Here is another one – Pieced by Sue S and Terri. This time Sue Quilted it.
And a Final Quilt from Sue and quilted by JoNell.
All of these quilts go into a Pillowcase. I think they are cool – they keep the quilts clean, they make them easy t transport, and the Veterans LOVE to use them on their beds. So I think they are a win win!
These Pillowcases were made by Connie. Connie is just awesome. She took homework this last week, and is piecing a million gatrillion backs for some of these tops e have finished!
From the Pride City Quilt Guild in Pueblo – more awesome pillowcases. These quilters have really done a fabulous job over the years ( YES YEARS) keeping these quilts in pillowcases! Can’t thank them enough!
The last quilt for today – This one was pieced with blocks from the Machine Quilters Exposition QOV block drive. I love it! It was quilted by me ;-)
Hope you all have a wonderful quilty day!
