She has posted several donation blocks on her blog already!
Look at P go at:
A little bird told me that Dar is getting in on the fun!
ME TOO! ME TOO! ME TOO! ME TOO!
For those of you who are unaware, Judy at Patchwork Times is encouraging quilters to
go ALL out and make at least 20 blocks by hosting:
The blocks are really fun, and easy to make, and will create a quilt to honor a current or former member of our US military with a beautiful keepsake. There are two pattern designs to choose from:
Just think of the satisfaction you will have in donating an hour or so of your time making 5 blocks? If you do make 5 blocks, there are some WONDERFUL prizes that may have your name on them? But, besides the prizes, take a look at some of THESE photos of soldiers receiving their Quilt of Valor. (Note: The following quilts are NOT made from the patterns listed. These quilts were made and hand quilted by Quilts of Valor of Eastern Missouri.)
WWII Veteran receiving his QOV from Jackie with Quilts of Valor of Eastern Missouri.
Another WWII Veteran receiving his QOV from Jackie with Quilts of Valor of Eastern Missouri.
A Vietnam Veteran receiving his QOV from Jackie with Quilts of Valor of Eastern Missouri.
This WWII Veteran is seated with his wife who also served at the Pentagon during that time.
This WWII Veteran is quite the "ladies man" from what I understand?
This Vietnam Veteran was able to share this day with his 96 year old mother, and his young granddaughter. (His daughter was also present, but, is not in this photo. 4 generations!)
Perhaps you don't have time right now in your busy schedule to make donation blocks, but, maybe you have an unfinished quilt hanging around that is begging to be donated? Do what my friend Donna did.....donate them to Quilts of Valor! Make sure the quilt meets these:
Here are the lovely quilts Donna donated:
Panels work great for QOV's!
These "Vanna Whites" are parading the recently donated quilts around the work area to be seen by all!
Here comes another quilt in the parade!
I DO hope you will consider donating to this worthy cause!
If you ARE interested, please do NOT hesitate to message me!
(Donated quilt tops do NOT have to be made in patriotic colors.)
In other sewing news:
Victoria Findlay Wolfe of Bumble Beans recently sent out a request for:
Click on the link I provided to learn more of why she needs these blocks, and what they are going to make. She also provided a free tutorial on how to make the blocks. They are A LOT of fun to make!
Never say never! I sewed on a label BY HAND at the QOV meeting.
Thanks Dar!........I think???? LOL
Until next time! Honor a Veteran!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
