Quilts of Valor...

Whew, another project to cross this off my "to do" list. A while back I picked up several 9" squares of the same fabric from a local quilt shop to turn into blocks for their QOV program. The shop donated the fabric, I just needed to use each in a quilt block and return the block to the store. Well, I decided to be an over achiever and make a whole top adding some fabric I bought and some vintage fabric I had on hand. My top measures approximately 60" x 80" which fits within the required size(s). 
Here's a scan of the QOV fabric from the quilt store:
I have a case of the "warm fuzzies" on two levels now, one getting a project done and two, creating something for a worthy cause! Thanks for stopping by...

That's a wonderful quilt - I'm sure it will be appreciated,bot the thought and care that went into making and the warmth of the quilt itself.

This is GREAT in every sense. Not only for the cause, but also for the design -a beautiful top!!!-
We should make an initiative like "Quilts of Valor" in Italy!!
