Quilts of Valor = September

Good Morning!!!  Hope you are all up bright and early and ready to stitch!!!

This happened !! We were honored to make and present Quilts to a group of Combat Veterans.
The recipients really didn't know that they were there to be honored - it was quite cool,
and amazing that we were able to keep it a surprise.

I love the Good Earth stash pack. I'm a sucker for good browns. When I get home today I will search for some appropriate fabric to make QOV blocks to send to you. Thanks for all you do!

I too like the Kathy/Connie production. Very different presentation of a star.

Did you have some female veterans in the group?

Those are some fantastic quilts for our Veterans. Thanks for all you do for QOV. I also enjoyed seeing your original mystery quilt for Military. Nice going. Loved your staging of the 2nd entry too. Looks great with that green tractor!
