Quilts of Valor - More Blocks!

Happy Wednesday Morning!

I think that fall is in the air, and maybe winter isn't so far behind. But if you would like to put a hold on the snow - I am okay with that for a bit. We still have a bit of winterizing to do ( and animals to move) so it can hold out!!

Today I am going to show you a ton of awesome Blocks that are coming in for the Block Drive!  It is so fun to see where they come from, and .... the fabrics!! I swear I feel like I haven't seen some of these before - so I should go shopping right???

Just a reminder - the Block Drive Instructions are here:

These two piles are a mix of Kathy in my sew Group and Joan in my sew group
Because I messed up - but i did write down the number that they made ;-)

From Sharon E in Greeley
She really wants to win some of Vicki Welsh's Handdyes

Deb M from Denver

And Jeanne from Florida
They blew in from the Hurricane ...
Seriously Jeanne - hope all is well for you!!

Betty in TX
Don't you just love that these come from all over!!

Anne C from CA

Denise V from CO
(Denise!!! )

The Murphys from NC

And this is a layout from Holly
She is making some blocks for us, but she has a Veteran to make  a
Quilt of Valor for
so she will be keeping this one for him

Don't forget our Amazing Sponsors
Thanks to Waterpik for offering 2 different showerheads as prizes
you can check out all their cool showerheads
(and water saving ones too - good for us!!)

and Thanks to Colorways by Vicki for FIVE Stash Packs!!

I'm so gratified that you're getting so many LCT blocks for Quilts of Valor! Looking forward to seeing them all sewn up and quilted. Thank you to all the makers for using my block design.

I'm likin' Holly's layout.

When are you going to share that Halloweenie in the background? I know today is RW&B, but it is time to be green, orange and purple.

Lots of fun and colorful blocks. You'll have a lot of quilts to stitch together from all of those.

I voted. It is exciting seeing the pictures of the blocks mailed to you. Of course one of the pictures was my blocks. Thanks so much for doing what you do.
