Quilts of Valor day

Today, our guild, Camden Quilt Guild, made their first blocks for Quilts of Valor. Wow! I thought folks would want to make one and move on to their own quilts...OH NO! Someone ran home and grabbed more muslin for the foundation and we ended up making 33 blocks! These ladies are awesome! It ended up being more of a "Quilts of Valor" sew in than anything.

We have quite a few members who are connected one way or another with a man or woman who is serving or has served in one or more branch of the armed services. We want to show our appreciation, and this is just one way that we can. The group plans to work on more quilts for QOV each month.

It was a busy, but productive and rewarding day. I'm unwinding now, listening to the sweet sounds of Rocker (our oldest Cocker Spaniel) snoring under the coffee table. (And I am listening to Pierce Brosnan singing to Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia...)

Sweet dreams of perfect seams!


  1. Bruce, the blog is great! Isn't is FUN? The QOV blocks are terrific. What a great way for the quild to spend their Saturday.
    About quilting - isn't it amazing that, even though we've been quilting for so long, our list of "quilts I have to make someday" gets LONGER instead of shorter?
    I agree that the different white-on-whites won't matter. Design option! :-)

  2. I really like this quilt. It is very fun to look at, like it's moving! I love the optical illusion vibe it gives off!
