Quilts of Valor CO

I have some great Quilts to show you today!! Do you have your coffee? or in my case Dr Pepper?

Let's go!

This one was fabric dyes, pieced and quilted by Vicki Welsh
She does AMAZING hand dyed fabrics!!

I'm not sure who pieced this one
But it is made with our past Block Drive Blocks
and quilted by Steve and Linda in Parker

Again another top snuck in
I think that Bernie pieced it
but it was Quilted by Debra B in CO

This was made by Angela in AZ
and quilted by Stefanie C

Below - also quilted by Stefanie C
Pieced by our Greeley Group

I didn't know if I wanted to share this or not
but this guy ( The Horse) has been such a big part of my life,
since he was born on our ranch... and he loved my Soldiers and Veterans
he always had a nuzzle or hug for them
He sadly developed Plural Pnemonia, 
and has gone to the big Roping Arena in the heavens.

Its been a rough time, so I wanted to remember him
in his happy spot - trying to sit on someones lap!

I'm so sorry you lost your horse, it's tough loosing those special animals. I love getting a pack of Dr. Pepper every once in a while just to change things up-I'm a Coke or Pepsi person.

I finally had a chance to search for my QOV and see that it was quilted all pretty! Thanks for all you do for our armed forces!
