Hope you have had a great Quilty Week so far!! I sure have... and I am having fun! I had visitors yesterday - that always inspires me. They were so excited and had made a LOT of Quilts of Valor - it was fun to check them all out!!
So - are you ready to be inspired??
If you have followed my blog for a while - you will remember that every so often I host a block drive. My favorite part about this - is that we have quilts that have a minimum of 30 people involved in that quilt. It is amazing to be able to say - you are hugged!!

The other thing I like is that it gives us a chance to have a lot of quilts in a lot of different phases - making sure we keep our supply up.
Some of them take a short time to get into the hands of our Veterans, and others take a while.
Either way it allows us to keep the supply in motion, and keep the choices of quilts variegated.
Smiles are totally worth it right?
This is another one Pieced by Liz - it was quilted by Stefanie - and again brought into Ruths. I love this center of this quilt!! They make a great team!
And the back..... Isn't that cool?
This is the Third quilt pieced by Liz -
It was quilted by Donna.
This beauty was pieced and quilted by Anne K in Colorado Springs. Such a great quilt!!

It was amazing ;-)
The next two quilts were made by Anonymous.
Anonymous is an impressive quilter!
If you know who you are - I would love to give you credit!!
These are beautiful!
To encourage you to come back on Sunday - another Block Drive quilt. You all these are really so much fun. So many of you send in blocks, and then we invite other to come in and assemble. We have had the University of Northern Colorado Softball players, the Key Club, our guild, our regular QOV sew-ists ( that I could not live without) , and even some veterans!
I love how they give everyone an opportunity to love on a Veteran. To let them know that we are grateful for them!
So.... Here is a Hint!
I already told you to dig out your patriotic 2 1/2 inch pieces...
Hint Number two:
Reds and Creams - should be at least 8 1/2 inches
Blues should be at least 10 1/2 inches
