Way back in February, the Quilts of Valor Foundation held a National Sew-in Day and one of our local quilters graciously sponsored an event at her development’s Club House (a great facility!). Lisa B brought fabrics and patterns for Carpenter’s Star quilt tops and we went to town putting them together. My camera settings were goofy that day, but here are some photos of the group in action. Each of our Carpenter Stars had a different panel print that was provided by Lisa:

The group finished four tops, I think, and partially finished one more. Lisa took them home to quilt for Quilts of Valor … they will be marvelous!
And Marilyn came to attend that event from all of the way over in Clermont. She brought her most recent QOV for show-and-tell. She regularly attends a QOV group in the Northeast!

And at the first of March, QOV coordinated a Mystery Quilt Event and I signed up. Periodically, I received instructions and this is my result:
|I love that flag fabric!|
Isn’t it gorgeous?! Thanks go to Le Ann Weaver at Persimmon Quilts for her Mystery Pattern No. 16: http://www.persimmonquilts.com/QOVMysteryHomePg.html
