March Sew-IN Meeting brought Spring and more QOVs...

March, 2015 Minutes
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
18 QOV quilt tops complete, ready for borders & binding, ONLY 12 remaining!
Five QOVs scheduled to be awarded in March

Our March meeting brought us a nice Spring Day...FINALLY!  I think we're ALL tired of scooping and shoveling snow - at least I know I am!!

And again, our Strip-Quilting Diva, Doris came packin':

There are 4 (FOUR) QOV tops in this bag and...
the folded Quilt of Valor in the background is one of Doris's, too - we just finished quilting!
I gently asked Doris for 3 (three) QOV tops in February to possibly be done by March - she brought 4 (FOUR) and they're ALL different!  She's really starting to branch out, now.

Aren't these neat?  And perfectly pieced, too I might add.

Check these out:

LOVE these two - can hardly wait to add borders!
I asked Doris IF it was really true that she had NEVER sewn a quilt top prior to sewing her first Quilt of Valor top last fall and she said that, "Yes, that is correct."  However, she admitted she has sewn most of her life - dressmaking and such shows...Thank YOU, Doris - you are a Godsend! Prayers really do get answered, don't they?

We've decided that since Doris has contributed soooo much over the last few months, including fabrics and threads and needles and cutting tools and...the list is endless as most of you Quilting Divas know, we're going to let Doris have first dibs on one of our QOV collection boxes - the one at Lori's Pins 'n Needles in Paris, IL.

February, 2015 haul at Lori's brought us a much needed bolt of white muslin - Thank YOU!
So - if you're in the area, Please drop by Lori's and visit a spell, she has LOTS of neat fabrics and exciting NEW Spring lines w/patterns and new machines and...our East Central IL QOV collection box is right up near the counter - we'll have Doris make up her 'Wish List' and whatever 'we' can all come up with, Doris will get first dibs...Hope to See You ALL at Lori's ;-)

Thanks goes to EVERYONE - you are ALL phenomenal!
