Quilts of Valor 2015

I am going to do a special QOV show!! Why? Well -(hanging head sheepishly) I haven't finished taking photos of all the star blocks yet!!

We had a blizzard Wednesday so I had to wait till later in the day to get to the Post office, after spending some time with our favorite heros.   and I sort of forgot - the Post office was closed!!!

Now I have all the bags, boxes and packages - and am going to enjoy my Saturday photographing them!

In the meantime - you can ohh and ahh over these yummy Quilts of Valor.

This first one comes from Deb and Dawna. We had a box of fabrics donated with lots of little pieces, UFO parts and more. And Deb dug through and this is what she came up with. Dawna quilted it.

QOV is spreading east as well - Ann from Yuma CO made these next two quilts. 

Aren't they great?   

This log cabin Quilt was made by Kathy in Loveland. She made this using the Eleanor Burns wonky log cabin ruler. It was quilted by Connie.

Check out this cool flag quilt! It was pieced by Tina A and quilted by Jeannie S of the Quaking Aspen Quilt guild. If I remember right - Jeannie is the president!

The quilt below was pieced by Patricia. I met Patricia at her quilt guild when I was speaking. We arranged to present a QOV to her husband as a surprise. And then she made this one in his honor.

It was quilted by Jean

The next quilt comes From Elaine.
She blogs at:

The next three quilts come from the Interfaith Quilters in Longmont.
They invited me to their guild to speak - and WOW!
What a group 
There sure was a lot of them

They chose Quilts of Valor as one of their recipients of their quilting skills

I am pretty sure that they made about 30 Quilts!!
They made this one for a Korean War Veteran
WOW!Was he teared up!

Hope you got your Patriotic Fix !!

Come back tomorrow
I will have the rest of the blocks

Hope you've been able to dig out from that last round of snow. We got enough to say it was snowing yesterday, but it didn't stick. Beautiful QOVs!
