Quilts of Valor 2018

You May remember back in October the Univ. of Northern CO Softball team came to stitch with us?

They created 4 quilt tops,. and I am slowly but surely working throught them

This is the first Quilt of theirs I have quilted

I am also working with a High School Group - and these are two of the Quilts they have made so far.

We had a lot of fun stitching them
and then they chose the quilting designs

My son and I quilted them up

You may recognize this pattern?
I have made several similar to it - but when Kevin the Quilter
did his Block drive -- I really fell in love with it again

AND! His directions are so easy for everyone to follow!

every Year I say I will keep track of how many QOV's I Piece and how many I quilt
and every year - I do good for 3 months and then - Bam! There are just too many Veterans

So I am not even going to try this year.... But this is the first 3 quilted for the year
(ha ha)

It's really cool that you get to share your love of quilting and love for QOV with young people. They did a great job.

Those are pretty! I loved that pattern too and made one and awarded it to one of the fellas in our Sunday School class. You are kickin' it!

Kevin the Quilter said...

You KNOW how much I admire your dedication to our military veterans through QOV!!! It does my heart good seeing these great quilts that have been made using a design that meant so much to me! Thanks friend!

I have seen Kevin's block drive quilts and have wanted to make a quilt, but have yet to accomplish the task. Hooray! for the groups of young quilters you work with. Keep up the good work!!!

Such an effective block. They make charming quilts. Congratulations on three finishes.

Kate said...

An easy block that makes a very cool quilt. My favorite is the one with all the blues.
