Quilts For Vets Of Wayne County, TN - Part 6

As of August 3rd  we have - 

26 completed quilts - 4 have been given away (will borrow them for the quilt show)
14 tops that need to be quilted and bound
4 waiting for binding
2 quilt kits that were finished today (I need to put the blocks into tops)
1 top being pieced by my friend, L
1 top being pieced by another friend, R - Dresden Plate
2 tops that I am piecing - including Alycia's Mystery

That is a total of 50!!!!

Not quite done by the end of July like I hoped,  though all are accounted for. I have to admit I did a little happy dance when I counted up the quilts.

This is the latest finished quilt... I pieced this one.

I am so looking forward to making a quilt that isn't in patriotic colors.

There are 3 of us who are going to make Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Quilt. Two of us are going to make it a bit bigger and the other is making it a twin size. We are going to meet on Wednesdays to make this.

This is the fabric I am going to use. I bought two fat quarter bundles at Shopping Spree at Market. I am going to use white with tiny white dots as the background.

These almost look like Batiks but they aren't.

Plus Karen and I are going to make a fall quilt with pumpkins! 

I am excited about both of these sew alongs.

Another beautiful QOV. Your group has done an amazing job making quilts in time. One of these days I am going to make a Lori Holt quilt.

I know it will be fun to work on Lori's blocks, and those are definitely NOT patriotic fabrics. LOL I do like your quilt, though.
