Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I received a call from my quilting cousin last week. She was coming through NV on her way to Idaho & if I could meet her in Wells NV she had 4 of my quilts finished & could pick up some more! Well I had Joey's flannel quilt ready to go & I found backing for the Judy L. Stash Challenge quilt so it went into the pile. And all I needed to do was piece the backing for the King size "Somewhere in Time" BOM I did last year, so that makes 3. But what I really wanted was to finish the Red, White & Blue top using some blocks of my mothers as a Quilt of Valor - Welcome home quilt for my son Travis. He's due back from his 2nd tour in Iraq in the middle of April & will be flying out here on May 7th. I can't wait to see him, it been so long! I took Mom's blocks & made 15 chain type blocks & added 1 pieced & 3 fabric borders to make it bed size. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I know it has hearts in it but my Mom & her quilt guild made those blocks, So they will be special to my Marine son, who is very family orientated!
And what did I get back. 2 of my Mom's Legacy of Quilts I'm finishing for her Grand kids, my Grandson Damon's quilt & a lap quilt I pieced about 10 years ago. I'll get pictures of these later. I also got the binding on the Judy L. Shadow Star quilt & my granddaughters Marys, Purple & Pink Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt. So it was a very productive week here in very windy, snowy NV. Perfect weather to finishing up the 2 Quilts of Valor tops I'm sending to Debra at Debra's Design Studio for quilting!
