Quilts of Valor - August in CO

Oh my - I am pretty sure that I have not settled into my new school routine yet - how about you? Does it take you a while to adapt to new routines???

The one thing I am pretty consistent at - is getting to the Wednesday QOV show - good thing I have a reminder on my phone!!  ( and you thought I was just organized - Ha)

These first two ( above and below)
are pieced by Candi and quilted by Kathy & Sue

I really like the zig zag in that string quilt!!

This cute one - with Uncle Sam there!
It was made by Margaret and quilted by Kathy and Sue

And then we have this Grey Beauty
Pieced and Quilted by Judy V

And all the way from Linda R 
She made these three amazing Quilts of Valor!!

I love that we can do scrappy and planned and have such awesome Quilts to Award to our Veterans touched by War.   They are just so amazing!!

Come back next week for sure ! Mark it on your calendars
We will start this years QOV CO block drive - and it will be fun!

The block is amazing
It was designed by Jan O
she blogs at:

She even designed a Quilt pattern to go with the block - so bonus!!

I have another Social Media question for you...
How many of you are members of Craftsy?

Don't worry - it's not a trick question - 
and I'll tell you why I asked it next week!

They're all great, but the string quilts are especially amazing. Way to go team USA!

Such lovely QOV, and a great cause too! A former President of our Guild is now in charge of Indiana's QOV so we often get to hear about the presentations and to see the lovely quilts. Love the variety. So when you meet each week, is it to work on quilts or to do a show and tell? Just curious.

Yes, I'm a member of Craftsy. I have yet to set up my store though. Just a shopper!
