I love doing these shows. I love having the inspiration at my finger tips, and I love sharing with you all the incredible Quilts that are made for Quilts of Valor. I always tell my friends and quilters - One quilt - is One more Veteran Touched by War "feeling the love" .... so never feel overshadowed by those who can make more than one.... okay??
Last week , or the week before - I can't quite remember
I headed out to the Colorado Springs Quilt Guild and spoke
They didn't kick me out, and no one fell asleep - so it must have been ok
It was fun seeing all my quilts on one table though - that did make me happy!
One of the Guild members - Jeannie - handed me this quilt for QOV
Isn't it fantastic?
It was pieced by Jeannie, Quilted by Regina, andbound by Peggy!
This one is from Judy V in Thornton
It is Star and Stripes
Pattern found here:
This one is blocks from my quilt guild
Put together and quilted by Rosalie

This one was made and quilted by Phyllis M from Colorado Springs
Next we have a pretty Purple and Green quilt
Pieced by Mary H and quilted by Shirley
We make Quilts of Valor for a Womens PTSD Retreat that occurs here once a year
and this quilt will be headed towards those women.
They LOVE the girly colors
( please - I don't need more girly quilts though,
we have awesome quilters who have made sure we have enough for 2016)
Hope that gives you a little inspiration?
