I did a Quilts of Valor presentation this weekend. It was done at a family party. The first recipient was a WWII veteran.
The others were for a Vietnam veteran and an Iraq War veteran. I made the St. Louis 16 patch on the left.
I started a new project. I decided to see what would happen if I worked on a top for only 15 minutes a day. I designed a simple top of alternating and sashed 4 patches and squares with some applique on day 1. Now it is day 8 and all the blocks are made and the first row is together.
I applied the 15 minute idea to my Swoon quilt this morning.
I got the first blocks sashed. Not bad for not really wanting to work on it but just making myself apply a few minutes to it.
This weekend is the Quilts of Valor National Sew Day. I’m running the Twitter and Instagram portion of the day. Follow the hashtag #quiltsofvalor to see what everyone is making that day! If you are sewing that day use the hashtag throughout the day so we can come visit.
