I recently donated a quilt top to someone for QOV.  The one I made was a stripy quilt of patriotic colors.  I was wondering it QOV's always need to be in red, white, and blue. My inclination is to use those colors, but that may not always work with the color scheme in the bedrooms of the receivers. What color combinations are favored by the recipients?

I'm a new quilter - my first quilt was a QOV.  KAthy Duwa was my mentor for that one - I got to present it to a WWII Vet on SAturday.  I was so thrilled to see the men get their quilts.  They truly ARE the "Greatest Generation".  While many chapters are focusing on our younger soldiers, who surely do need the QOVs, we need to cover these old guys, too, before they're all gone!

Thanks to everyone who sent up prayer to help out I got all the quilts done and even spent 6 hours trying and successfully timing my machine I hit my finger and that made for a stressful day. but hey I made it and we presented 12 WWII Veterans and one young Veteran with quilts in our local area. It was so neat to see their faces. So thanks again to all.

Well one done ready to load #2 and then on to three and 4.  Then to bind and put on pockets and wash. My eyes are feeling a bit stessed so hooefully the migraine stays away.

Kathy the eagle panel was provided me by the leader of our QOV group. I don't think it is available anymore. I'm not sure where she found it. If I find out differently, I'll let you know.

Headed out the door now to head for a charity sewing for Prayers and Squares.

I sure could use your prayers this week it looks like I am going to have to LA quilt 4 QOVS this week and bind before Saturday. We had two just finish theirs and I had two already that I pieced which were on the books for this week. Been pushing alot and still haven't made the blocks for our strip quilt for Monday nights guild meeting. Sure hope I can get it all done as we have local Veterans WWII which are to recieve these on Saturday.
