WoW, More WoW, Other WoW,
Posy and the gang have registered and are driving in from Idyllwild to be at the American Legion Hall on Sat. the 15th. And they are bringing more than 50 QoV Friendship Star Blocks of the Month with them. Others have registered and are driving in from Big Bear and Ontario! Very nice.
Blocks are coming in from all over - San Fran and Bakersfield have joined in. Cool.
On the Kaye Wood website under Events, the second item is:
Quilts of Valor, Volunteer Sew In, March 15, 2008, Long Beach, CA, 9-5. More Info. Even More Info
More info is the announcement of the 1600 Blocks of the Month and American Legion "Sew-In" document. Even More Info is the pattern for the Blocks of the Month.
Special thanks to Kaye Wood and company at kayewood.com for helping to share the love. We will sew well and make you proud. And thanks to Barbara for sending it to them.
I think my head is going to explode.
This is incredible. This is going to be so much fun. And we are going to make so many Quilts of Valor. Just WoW!
I am not sure where I got the courage to say this without knowing exactly how many blocks are in route as I write this but I can be brave. We need suggestions for Blocks of the Month for next month. If you have a pattern and instructions for a favorite block send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
