QOV Meeting

I went to my local Quilts of Valor meeting yesterday at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop and we had a great time!  Our group, the CT Quilters, has a go-to pattern that we make frequently – The Fourth of July by Bonnie Hunter.  We make it scrappy like Bonnie shows so we can maximize our fabric donations and can make kits of the two blocks (a 4-patch and a snowball) for volunteers to make up at home.  This is one top that was finished from that pattern and will be sent to one of our longarm quilters:
 But I really love it when our members bring in quilts that they have made at home from different designs.  These are so inspirational!  These two were brought in by Debbie – her work is excellent:
Debbie put these incredible stars around a panel donated to the group
Debbie used the book below for this new-to-me design
We also had a potluck lunch to celebrate the holidays … lots of fabulous cooks in this group, let me tell you.  I snarfed up some of everything.  Today I had to repent and really work at stretching at yoga class!  Tomorrow I sew …

WTG on the QOVs, Kathy!

I have that book as well and there are some real beauties in it. Mom and I explored a couple of them when I was home one summer. We wanted to re-size for Wrap 'Em. She did "And All That Jazz"

I keep gravitating to the Fall Frolic or Checkboard Plaids one as I have a ton of plaids and homespuns.

If you don't have a copy, you may want to consider getting it down the line!
