Thank you, Carol.

Most of the quilts that I made are destined for a charity.  I'm a long-time quilter and I have made and do make quilts for my family but they have enough at this point.  QOV is  the group I most like to belong.  Our group covers a lot of territory and quite a few forces bases.  Our quilts are distributed by the corps of chaplains.  The forces participate in our quilt-ins.  The forces photographers and the local T.V. publicize our meetings.  And we always have a high-ranking officer speak to our group of quilters.

High schoolers who need to do so many hours of community service sometimes help cut our kits. And children of forces' members sometimes help as pressers.  The thank you e-mails we receive are read out loud at our meetings.  And need I say the munchies are always excellent!

Next meeting is April 27 and my friends and I will be there!

Hi Carol

The pattern for the red and white quilt I posted is Burgoyne Surrounded.

It's an old traditional pattern that I'd always loved and knew I'd never make for myself. When I was retiring from being guild president after 6 yrs. a friend suggested they make it for me.  Bless her.

Carol thanks I received your red and yellow batik strips today!

I need to know if you are sending me strips or if you have dropped out. I have received a majority of them and am ready to return them. There are some great looking tone on tone blues. You will be very happy.

Thanks

Chef Lisa

Carol send 12 - 2 1/2" Blue Batik strips to Lisa Gorski 2011 SE 8th Terrace, Cape Coral, FL 33990 with a returned stamp envelope. I have received some so it should be a quick turn around.

Hi Carol,

Yes, you may use the pattern.  I belong to a QOV organization in Eastern Canada.  QOV in Canada was modelled after your organization in the U.S.

We make quilts 50x70 in easy patterrns with low loft cotton and good cotton for the top and backing.  We have Quilt-ins in the Spring and Fall.  Kits are prepared in advance of these days.  We pick out a baggie with pattern and precut fabric and sew all day.  The military usually send representatives.  It is the Corps of Chaplains in the Cnadian Forces who dsitribute our quilts.  People can hand in just the finished top or complete the quilt entirely.

I finish my quilt and take home two other quilt tops with backing and batting to sandwich, quilt and hand bind.

People who do not want to sew can come and iron or sew bindings.  We always have coffee and tea and some munchies.  I love the day very much.  Sometimes  children with fathers serving in the forces come to help us.  Sometimes classes will prepare the fabric kits too as their community service.

 

Let me know if you need cutting and-or sewing instructions.

Thanks for the friends request.  I'll check around at our local stores and see what might match.

Thanks Carol. I use coloring pages and pictures for my people patterns. It is kind of like paper dolls but with fabric.

I also wanted to let you know that I love the quilt that you made with the pictures on it. The bunny basket is just way too cute. You do some very nice work yourself.
