Little House on the Prairie forgot that fact that chores still need to be done!! Except now it's dark... and some of those dark animals - they creep up on you when you least expect it... or disappear only to scare the everything out of you when they reappear. My dog gets a kick out of this.... she's black....
All that to say - that I enjoy being inside to photograph these wonderful Quilts of Valor!
This lovely String Quilt was Pieced and Quilted by Glenna B
This yummy Scrappy Quilt ( which is now on my bucket list - was pieced by Deb and Lynn, and Quilted by Dawna in Colorado.
The one below was Pieced and Quilted By Judy V in CO.
The next one ( below) was pieced by Kathy and quilted by Connie.
They are a famous Duo... I talk about them all the time ;-)
This is another one pieced and Quilted by Kathy and Connie.
If I remember right this is an eleanor burns pattern. Don't hold me to it though!
Colorado Quilt Council is our State Wide Guild. They do a cool block thing - and you turn in blocks. Then names are drawn ( from the block makers) and the winners get to choose where the finished quilt will go. Ellen entered blocks and was chosen - and she chose Quilts of Valor to be the recipient.
The charity can use the quilts as they see fit - gifting, auctioning, fundraising etc. We chose to Wrap a Warrior!
The next four quilts are from the Arapahoe County Quilt Guild. - They held a sew day and WOW!
Did these quilters work their fabric off!!! They made quilts - and they made pillowcases....
And they just had a great time!!
They did a great job!!
I'll leave you with a few more smiling faces!! That ought to make your day bright and cheery!!
