Santa came Early...he sent one of his QOV elves ;-)

Look what one of Santa's Quilt Of Valor elves just brought to our monthly QOV Sew-In meeting:

SIX (6) Quilts of Valor quilt tops from guess who...?

None other than our Strip Quilting Diva...Doris!

One of Santa's favorite QOV Elves and especially ours ;-)

Let's take a closer look at just what our Doris has been up to since we last got to see her in September, shall we?

Another wonderful 'original' design by our Doris - Love it!

This picture does not do this QOV quilt top justice - there are some really neat Military fabrics in the sashings of this quilt and amongst the blocks in a camo green print.  
Do you see a flag block?


What an eye-catching patriotic Quilt of Valor top!


A neat collage of patriotic fabrics and prints - should look amazing bordered out!


This QOV may get awarded to a Veteran Doris & I had the privilege of meeting today
who admired ALL the Quilts of Valor we were sharing

#6 is a compilation of Doris's dedication to the creation of
comforting and healing Quilts of Valor for those touched by war,
and her amazing eye for color and original design

These and sooo many others that Doris has generously volunteered to create this past year, will border out wonderfully well and once quilted, be awarded to deserving Service Members and Veterans throughout our East Central Illinois area, along with battlefield warriors and those who escort our fallen heroes to their final resting place.

A huge, BIG Thank YOU goes out to our Doris, and ANYONE who creates Quilts of Valor like her. Because of QOV Volunteers like Doris, so many deserving Service Members and Veterans will soon be covered with a stunning Quilt of Valor and honored for their service and sacrifice for our country.


Thanks Santa!

PS...linking up with QOV Volunteer, Alycia, and her amazing Quilts of Valor quilt show...Enjoy!
