It was difficult this year to pick the category that I wanted to enter, but there's a very special group of quilters that are close to my heart - the Valle Vista Quilters group. We are primarily a subset of the Kingman Quilters Guild, but do have some who join us who are not members of the guild.
I'm selecting the category Favorite Group/Bee Quilt because this year our Valle Vista Quilters created 4 quilt tops for the Kingman Quilters Guild Quilt of Valor celebration in November. Each year our guild presents to wounded warriors in Mohave County. This year, I was asked to quilt one of the beautiful tops that was pieced by our group.
|Snow Ball Quilt Top with Rows of Appliqued Stars|
The snow balls were each made individually by our quilters and were assembled into this uniquely designed quilt top.
|Quilt Motif of a Waving US Flag with a Border of Feathers|
|The border uses the same verigated|
thread in a feathered border
|The red stripes are filled with paisleys|
|The field of stars emulate the size and shape of the applique'd stars|
Lastly Margie created labels for the quilts that include each and every name of the participants from Valle Vista who helped with the quilts.
Fun, fun time with projects that help show our appreciation for quilting and for those who served in our military.
