Today I finished a top for Quilt of Valor, it was 95 degrees outside...a very good afternoon to sit at the sewing machine! I love this pattern, it is called Summer Breeze and you can find it in Kim Brackett's Scrap-Basket Surprises. This is the second time I have made this pattern, the first was done in pastels.
If you are interested in learning more about Quilts of Valor, you can check out the website. Also, some Public Broadcasting television stations are airing a 2 hour special about the quilts and the people that make them as well as the recipients. It is heartwarming, so I hope you will be able to view it.
I belong to a local QOV quilting bee, we meet again this coming Saturday. It is a very prolific group of ladies! If you would like to help out, we are always in need of fabric. So if you are cleaning out your stash and have some fabric, 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric or a UFO quilt top that you think would make a nice quilt to give to a soldier or veteren, contact me, and we will be glad to take it off your hands. Maybe there is a group close to you? At any rate, it is a worthy cause!
Hope you are staying cool on these hot summer days...
