Quilts of Valor awards

 Three more Quilts of Valor were awarded last weekend.

This was an extra special QOV project - one that I worked on personally.  My friend nominated her husband and her brother for QOV via the website, and because she's also a quilter she wanted to help make their quilts.  So we met for lunch, chose a block pattern, and did some planning.  She made half the blocks and I made half the blocks for both quilts. 

However, because my friend is also a veteran with 15 years of service, I wanted to surprise her with her own Quilt of Valor.  I made that one myself, using the scrappy red, white, and blue Twinkle Star blocks I had made over the last year.  

She planned to surprise the guys with their quilts at a big family Thanksgiving celebration.  My surprise was that there were 3 quilts to award - and I did completely surprise her.
