Almost November already!
How this year has flown by!
I know a lot of it has to do with my moving to the Quilt Cave and working more.......
Time certainly does fly when you are having fun!
And, this past week was really fun!
Awarding Quilts of Valor from the block drive
through Quilts of Valor, Eastern Missouri is A LOT of fun!
I have said it before, and I will say it again, and again!
This NEVER gets old!
What a nice assembling of quilters at the
129 quilters came out to see the QOV presentations
as well as my lecture and trunk show!
I love seeing these smiles after a QOV presentation!
The daughter (second from left) of this Viet Nam Veteran
moved and overcome at the presentations and
was so thankful.
This is what we can do when we come together as quilters
for a common goal!
This World War II Veteran had a large portion of his
family present when he received his Quilt of Valor.
Another happy Viet Nam Veteran
with his family.
And a cousin that honored her Iraqi War hero.
These two are really close!
It was a really great presentation for these Veterans.
then it was time to talk about
scrap quilts and have some fun with............
Oh my! These gals were an absolute hoot!
I was so pleased to have my good friend Dar of
at the meeting there with me!
Dar (on the right) is one of the reasons I became so involved with
Quilts of Valor, Eastern Missouri.
So it made things even more fun and special!
(My apologies to one of my hotties for not being in this photo!)
I met SOOOOOOOOO MANY
Bonniacs at this meeting!
And speaking of my quilting rock star Bonnie...........
Bonnie announced the intro and colors to:
Those of you who know me...............
I will be making the mystery in a
patriotic color scheme!
I am substituting:
Navy for Purple
Baby Blues for Lilac
Grays for Green
I will use a Red constant in place of the Magenta constant
And the Yellows and Neutrals shall remain the same!
I will follow guidelines of QOV sizes
and will construct the quilt appropriately.
I am linking up with my friend Alycia of
because we are both going to do patriotic versions of this
mystery that Bonnie so generously offers to quilters.
Let us know if you are going to do a patriotic version as well!
Gotta go to work now!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Keep on Scrap Quilting!
