Quilt of Valor #3

DSC_0143

Quilt of Valor #3 started.  Quilts #3 and #4 will be the same pattern and, except for the backing, same fabric.

You may have read earlier posts about my garden club scheduling a speaker from QOV for our February meeting.  We will surprise two of our members by wrapping them in their own quilt.  Their quilts used the Stars of Valor pattern.

In addition to a bake sale, members made financial donations and we ended up with enough money to purchase fabric for two more quilts.  These two quilts will be made using the pattern Walk About designed by Ann Lauer at Grizzly Gulch Gallery.  The Garden Club board selected two veterans from our neighborhood who have worked behind the scenes assisting us in our beautification efforts.  We can call on these gentlemen at any time and they show up with power tools and most recently a chain saw.

There are many more deserving residents in our neighborhood and Garden Club hopes to expand our program.  We have one problem though, I am the only quilter/sewer in the group.

Four rows completed on QOV #3.

Have you made a Quilt of Valor?  What pattern did you use?

    Quilts #3 and #4 are going to be awesome! The rust red chevrons are very eye-catching. The gentlement with power tools are going to be so surprised and pleased with the gifts from your garden club. I have made several QOVs. Some were made with Americana colors, some were scrappy. I tend to like stars for QOVs – that’s patriotic, don’t you think?
