Quilt of Valor Sew-in

Quilt of Valor Sew-in
Riverton, WY
June 20, 2014
Friday evening, my friend Sue and I went to a Quilt of Valor (QOV) Sew-in, sponsored by a local quilt shop and the Wyoming QOV coordinator. Local businesses purchased quilt kits for the volunteers to assemble.

I spent the evening pressing and trimming; Sue prepared fabric for the blocks for another lady who manned the sewing machine. In less than two hours, the three of us finished 35 blocks.

About 12 additional volunteers worked on various QOV kits and patterns. The three ladies in the photo were working with scraps from previous sew-ins.

I had other plans on Saturday, so I didn't get to see the finished quilt tops.

  4. A production line - very efficient. And probably lots of fun. I sure like the looks of that block. It would look great using any collection of fabrics, but I have a soft spot for red, white, and blue.
