Packing up our QOV Signature Blocks w/MQX MidWest Quilt Festival Itinerary 
Been busy (in between my other projects ;-) getting ready for one of the MidWest's BIGGEST quilt shows of the year, making MQX MidWest QOV quilt blocks:

10 MQX Diamond Chain QOV quilt block
Still working on the MQX Hourglass blocks for a complete set of twenty - should have those ALL finished up this afternoon.

Our East Central IL Quilts of Valor Group has also been working on QOV Signature blocks at our last sew-in:

Been able to complete a little over 700+ sooo, we should be good:

Packing up our QOV Signature Blocks
For those who've been sewing these blocks, Please drop them off at our IL QOV booth at the MQX MidWest Quilt Festival in Springfield IL OR bring them to our October 9, 2014 East Central IL QOV Group meeting...Thanks!

Stop by our IL QOV booth and sign a QOV Signature block or two for our Service Members and Veterans!  And we have some 'surprise' QOV handouts complete w/F R E E QOV quilt block pattern and our latest Quilts of Valor Standards of Excellence guidelines that have already been packed up. We're also collecting military t-shirts to make a QOV Benefit quilt that will be raffled off in the Spring of 2015.  If you happen to have a nice military t-shirt you'd like to have included, please drop by our booth or contact us for details...Thank YOU!

While running around recently dropping off the MQX MidWest Brochures to area Quilt Shops and Businesses, made a pit stop at Lori's Pins and Needles in Paris, IL, who also agreed to put up one of our QOV monetary donation containers:

Quilts of Valor Donation container - looks like there's already been some generous donors!
Note:  ALL monetary donations will be used to purchase fabrics and materials from the business they are collected at to create Quilts of Valor for our deserving Service Members and Veterans...Thanks! 

Stop by Lori's and pick up your MQX MidWest Quilt Festival brochure w/itenerary - they took a stack of them and they're ready and waiting for you ;-)  Don't forget to check out they're latest patriotic fabrics...just perfect for making Quilts of Valor!

See you All in Springfield,
