Our October Meeting - Doris came...;-)

And guess what our very own Strip Quilting Diva brought?  Not one, not two, NOT even three QOV quilt tops...NINE (9) Quilts of Valor quilt tops!  This is what can happen when an 80+ year young quilter can be left to her own quilty devices ;-)

Doris's NINE (9) QOV Quilt Tops!

Ready for the QOV show?  Here we go - We'll let Doris show you the first one:

We really liked the patriotic fabrics she chose for this one!

And here it is in it's entirety:

How creative and colorful is this?

Next - we will unveil ALL these outstanding QOV quilt tops...Enjoy!

#3 QOV quilt top

#4 QOV quilt top

#5 QOV quilt top

#6 QOV quilt top


#7 QOV quilt top

#8 QOV quilt top
And the last but certainly NOT the least these Quilts of Valor quilt top by our Doris:

QOV quilt top #9!

These pics do NOT do the fabrics in these colorful QOV quilt tops justice!  Once ALL these amazing patriotic quilt tops are bordered out - they will quilt into some really wonderful Quilts of Valor.

And IF my math is correct - this puts Doris well over the FIFTY (50) mark for her total contribution of QOV quilt tops, just since October, 2014!

A Big HUGE Thank YOU goes out to our very own Strip Quilting Diva, Doris!  Because of her Quilts of Valor efforts, nine (9) more Veterans and Service Members will be honored and covered with wonderful Quilts of Valor.

And once again - got a BIG hug from one of our previously awarded QOV recipients, Peggy...those are The Best!

Time to get busy with borders and quilting!
