Finished Quilts of Valor

I have a ton of Cool Quilts of Valor to show you!! and

Yesterday we had a pretty cool QOV presentation... we did masks, and social Distancing, and hand sanitizer and you know... It worked out pretty well..

I was even saluted from a really cool Service Dog of one of the Marines that attended.
Now... I am trying to teach my dog to do that!!!  He just keeps looking at me strangely!

This one was made by Debbe and Ethel
i think Debbe Quilted it and Ethel Bound it

I made this one - 
It was our Winter Mystery QAL
and quitled it - Ethel Bound it!

Nettie made this one, Connie Quilted it - and I think Kathy Bound it

This cool rail fence was made and quilted by Deonna!

This one ( below)
was a collboration of Colorado quilters - 
we all made the blocks 
Crystal quilted it - 
I think it still needs to be bound... but you are not holding me to that right?

THis one below is the Lone Rider Mystery Quilt
It was made by Cindy
and quilted by Crystal

ad here is another one - 
Crystal did the quilting on it too

I think color choices made quilts look so different
Same pattern - Two different outcomes
LOVE it!

Our Presentation!!

We were so lucky to be able to do it at our Church - Our Church building is brand new.... Sunday was the 2nd Sunday that we had services in it - so I joked that the building has been open 8 days... God made the World in the first 7 days... and on the 8th Day... we were supposed to make Quilts of Valor...


The building was perfect - people were able to sit in their family groups, and keep space, we all wore masks... Well I took mine off to talk but I was a good 12 foot away from anyone, and then put it back on... What a great day!!!

Great quilt collaborations and it's awesome that you got to do a QOV presentation!!

Alicia, It is so nice to know that you are able to wrap veterans with QOV now and that your event went so well. The organization that you put into place sounds like a great plan and I hope it is OK to pass the info on to my QOV friends in AK. Thank you so much for sharing and for posting the pictures of the quilts. I wish that we had started doing that when we started.

Have a wonderful week.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

looks like everything was spaced very well and that is what is needed and the masks of course - I bet it was nice to see everyone and present the quilts

Donna said...

Beautiful quilts! It’s great the presentations are starting back up even with masks and social distancing!

Karol said...

Beautiful as always! I don't know how you manage all you do. You are such an inspiration!

How amazing to be part of such a group.
Loved the little quilt show-thanks for all you do for QOV!

That's wonderful. I'm sure they will all be cherished.

Oh I bet that felt extra good to be able to do a presentation during this Covid time. Glad you were able to do it all safely. Thanks for show and tell this morning.

Kat Scribner said...

Great quilt show, Alycia. Lots of love there

Our church opened its new sanctuary two times before COVID shut us all down. Now, we are perfect for social distancing. We leave a whole row between and at least 4 seats apart. Great presentation!

Preeti said...

A gorgeous quilt show - all from the safety of my home :-) I am sure it was enjoyed by all. QOV is mighty lucky to have you!!!

Susan said...

I love your joke! How wonderful to have all the work and planning finally open in a new building for you, with that wonderful stage, too. The quilts are all beautiful, and each recipient looks pleased.

Glad you could still do a presentation. Our church is still meeting outside, but I did get to have my ladies crafting group inside in July (only 5 of us).
