Quilts of Valor 10th Anniversary Block Drive

So wanna help celebrate ten years of Quilts of Valor? This darling little block is super easy to make and will make good use of your red, white and blue scraps!

If you are interested in making a block (or two), please follow this link. You can download the PDF directly from the Quilts of Valor website. Please feel free to pass this on to your family, friends, guild members or anybody you think might want to contribute! I can't imagine how special the quilts made from these blocks will be!

March Sew-in Recap

Saturday's sewing day was a big success! We had some new members join us this month which is always so thrilling! I'm so pleased to say that not only are they very talented, but so incredibly nice too!

Most of us (including me) worked on the celebration blocks for Quilt of Valor's 10th Anniversary (blog post soon). Here are some shots of our progress:

Becky was the only one of us who had brought a project of her own to work on and what a project it is!

 She has already finished one with a white background and is starting now on this one in blue. I can't decide which I like better!

Isn't she so talented?

I think I can safely say that a good time was had by all! Spending time quilting with good people for a good cause is always time well spent! If you live in the Northern Virginia area and are interested, please join us! We are still a small group, but we're growing!

Stay tuned for our next date in April! I'll announce it soon!
