Quilts of Valor 2014

If you haven't read all about it - Quilts of Valor Colorado is hosting a new block drive!! And!! Of course there are prizes!!  Is providing a prize!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE her fabrics..  is providing a great shower head. After all of that stitching this is a total bonus....

So head over and read it real quilt; I will wait.....

Perfectly easy block right? I designed it myself - and THAT is how I know everyone can stitch it!!!

On to today's yummy goodness!!

I tease that these quilts will make our soldiers feel like super heros.... and.. it worked!!

This quilt below - is a first time quilters quilt - it was made by Carol's Granddaughter. The borders - PERFECT!! I quilted it, and when I brought it back to sew day - I asked Carol for lessons. She sort of laughed - but I may have been serious!

This quilt was made by Donna L - And I quilted it. I had fun with all the variety of blocks!

This lovely beauty was pieced and quilted by Lynn W in Alamosa. I love the controlled scrappy!

This is Pat R's Allegiance Quilt. OH MY GOSH - this is beautiful. But the quilting.. oh my - to die for!

Margie P sent in a great box of pillowcases - and fabric!! The fabric is on the right!

This group of Pillowcases comes from the Pride City Quilt Guild!

The last quilt today comes from Sharon D. It is beautiful!!

And because I know you need to see some extra smiles today!!
Here you go! 
 Don't you just LOVE the smiles?
He wanted you all to see the beautiful quilt rather than him.... little did he know - we want both ;-)

I hope you will all get a chance to participate in our blog drive. Last year we made close to 100 quilts - and they are in all sorts of stages - so it helps us keep our Quilt Flow going. Just a quick note - this year here in Colorado we have presented 778 quilts.... so we appreciate all the help and support !
