The Quilts of Valor Foundation’s Sew-In Day was a great success today up in Trinity, FL! The facility where we met was great and we had lots of room – a special Thank-You to the Champion’s Club for allowing us to use their meeting room for this event.
Lisa supplied great fabrics and had many pre-cut and pre-marked for 1/2 square triangle sewing right off the bat. She did a great job preparing - lots of work involved there! The pattern was a Carpenter's Star design that Lisa modified to use center panels that she had gotten from Northcott and an on-line source (flags, eagles, etc).
Unfortunately, your webmaster fell down on the job taking pictures, because she was having fun sewing, but here are two of the finished tops (before ironing):
The group actually finished 4 complete tops and a 1/2 top that Lisa will finish - Lisa intends to quilt them. This link might work to take you to the QOVF Facebook page for the first one that Marilyn posted: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=802493583098734&set=gm.10151938503968716&type=1
We expect that this is now going to be an annual event for the Quilts of Valor Foundation, so go ahead and Save the Date for the first Saturday in February in 2015!
