Quilts Of Valor, BOM Rehab and A Finish!

 mosaic725b523d89d2c0715f9cb965774a9374d091d50a Saturday was our monthly Quilts of Valor sewing day.  Pictured, are three quilts ready to go, and one on it’s way to be quilted.  Pat hosted at her house and as always, lots of talking happened, as well as catching up with friends…so fun, and such a wonderful group to be part of.


I’m afraid I have turned in to a bit of a boring blogger.  Here it is another week and all I have to report on is my rehab work, but at least it’s something!!!  Thanks to Sinta for keeping me on track.007  Two more blocks for A Year To Crow About, and another block for my Christmas Quilt.  I have been having a struggle with the Crow about blocks.  I’m sure it is me, but they have really tested me.  I was thinking I should may be put it aside for a while (and we all know what that means :-) !!!  This morning I went to breakfast with a friend and saw my friend Debbie’s completed quilt top ……..ok, it was stinkin’ cute (sorry no picture)!!!  I came home determined, and since I only have 4 more blocks to go, I’m going to hang in there!


Here’s a finish for me.  This little runner has only been in the works about two or three years….I don’t know why, but it has!!!!  So my friends Chris and Karen quilted it up for me, and yesterday I got the binding on, and added the furry cotton tails…a finish, is a finish no matter how long it takes or how small it is!

Wednesday I am meeting up with my friend Lani.  We met 29 years ago in our very first quilting  class and she is one of my very, very best friends.  We have shared some wonderful quilting and family memories along the way, and it is always fun to see what she has been working on.  I’ll remember my camera that day for sure!!

There is a reward for anyone finding my missing MOJO…..and please tell it to come home!  Wishing you all a very happy week!

You are amazing! I love your runner and your Christmas BOM is so so cute too. It must have been a fun time with the group making the Quilts of Valor. Very good work. I took a stack of quilts to the VA for the guys in the poly trauma unit in Dec. Incredible men and women there... and staff!

Hey -- you have a finish (and a cute one!) so it looks to me like you have some mojo! It is the time of year for missing mojo though -- I think it returns with spring. Have fun with your friend -- long time quilting friends are the best!
