The first meeting of the yet-to-be-named Quilts of Valor group sew day was a rousing success! They framed 13 floating stars donated over the summer into the traditional Grandmothers Frame piecing pattern, and almost everyone took kits home to piece more. Even more kits were taken at the BBQ membership meeting, so there will be lots to do setting them into tops at the November meeting. Bring your sewing machine (thread and what you need for sewing perfect quarter-inch seams), rotary cutter, ruler and mat, and red, white, and/or blue fabric.

If you’re a machine quilter, we’ll need your skills, too (homework, of course). The objective of the group will be to make red, white and blue quilts, donate them to Quilts of Valor and award them locally, as requested, through the Quilts of Valor Foundation website www.qovf.org.

Contact Connie Emmen qwik4me@live.com or 208.336.9919 (landline, no text)) if you have questions or input. Hope to see you there!
