Well, this is a bit of a kerfuffle! Lyn was traveling last month, so we didn't have a June QOV round-up, and now I'm traveling this month. (Because Science is on its third trip to Space Camp.) So July’s quilts are a late addition to this post, due to a laptop malfunction on the road.
June wasn't a busy month for Quilts of Valor, until it was. And that's even with planning ahead! I knew early in June that I would be giving away three quilts at our town’s “spirit festival” at the end of the month, so I've been quilting one a week to be ready. But then I got a request that was urgent, so I reappropriated one of the nearly finished ones.
That's this one! Pieced by one of my guild ladies, quilted and bound by me. The gentleman is wheelchair bound, so the smaller size makes it easier for him take along with him. So that worked out!
I presented three quilts at my town’s Spirit Festival the last weekend in June - two by my friend’s mother, one was my Friendship Chain quilt.
Second by my friend’s mother.
Several of the Friendship Chain blocks were made during the local Sew Day, so it’s awesome to be able to present it to a local veteran.
Then I got a request to present at a fiftieth wedding anniversary party on July 4th. Of course! They asked for an eagle panel, which I had started, so I finished that up and got that presented.
And then there’s the almost-local quilt shop’s block of the month. These are…well, they’re scrappy. That’s about all I can say. I already got my coupon and bought a panel for QOVF with it, so they serve their purpose. I’m not even going to worry about a setting for them until they’re done.
And so… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
