Quilts of Valor Block Drive

Oh what fun it is to open my mail!!!   And what fun it is to see people posting their blocks!! Yay!!

First Off - this is a great presentation that Karol did and her Veteran was just so surprised!! I would be in shock too with a Quilt like this!!

Isn't that just amazing! Thank you Karol for honoring this Veteran for his service!! And Showing him the love!!

The Blocks - lets show you a few that have arrived!!
Huge shout out to Jan of The Colorful Fabriholic and author of Cut and Shuffle Quilts for the Block pattern

Now remember!! There are Prizes!!!
These are the latest Prizes to be added to our Block Drive!!

For every block sent in you are entered into the drawing - there is a chance to win one of these awesome shower heads from WaterPik  . WaterPik has been a wonderful supporter of our Block Drives so I love to support them,. Not only do they have these awesome, easy to install Showerheads - they carry a great line of Water Flossers.

 ( PS - this is me talking now- not their PR rep)  After having 3 boys in braces - two times each... YES people - that is why I have to quilt - stress relief!!  We have had only 1 cavity between the three boys - Can you imagine that?

I credit that to their daily water flossing!!   Anyways .... I digress......

PS - Don't forget the 5 Stash Pack from Vicki Welsh
