QOV National Sew Day Goes Scrappy

Yesterday was the National Sew Day sponsored by the Quilts of Valor Foundation.  My QOV group here in Tampa met and worked up a wonderfully scrappy Rail Fence top:

The rows weren't quite finished being sewn together in this photo and the quilt will have a small border all around when finished.  It will be very snuggly!

I also finished up a non-scrappy Disappearing 9-Patch top at the Sew Day.

I had started the blocks at home and took them with me to Sew Day to finish up the top.

We had lots of fun, enhanced by the pizza and brownies of course!  And we received back three quilts from our fabulous longarm quilter, Pat B.  Thank you so much, Pat!

Linda F made the two Big Star quilts from her leftovers from other QOVs.  Great use of leftovers, isn’t it?!

Linking up with later today.  Cynthia is in Oregon and I am in Florida – I’ve already been up and out pulling weeds this morning.  The weather is beautiful, 73 F (~22 C) and sunny.  Tomorrow we’re expecting rain, so those pesky weeds will be sure thrive and grow back – heavy sigh …

You have put together some lovely quilts. I am certain they will be appreciated and how nice to have a group to sew with. We have QOV (with a "u") here in Canada. I always think it is sad there is such a need for these quilts.

Hello from Oregon! All of our weeds are drowning in mud puddles right now. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful quilts with Oh Scrap!

How lucky you are to have a group to sew with! All those red, white, and blue quilts are so pretty.
Oh Scrap directed me to your blog. It's nice to meet you! We're expecting snow here in Kyoto today and tomorrow...
