Quilts for Vets of Wayne County, TN - Part 7

All 50 quilt tops have been made! 30 are 100% done!!! I am thrilled. For now my part of this is complete. I will be washing and drying the quilts once they are finished.

I pieced the first two quilts and I do have to confess that I was getting tired of making patriotic quilts and when I saw this pattern I just had to make something that went together really fast. To my surprise the ladies in the group really liked it (if they hadn't they would have told me so, believe me) and want to have a class to make one!
I made two tumble quilts this year, I cut out way too many blocks and just decided  to make a duplicate. I still have more blocks that we will use next year for the Vietnam Vets.



This quilt is the result of our last group sewing day - we made 56 blocks and used 42 in this quilt. The rest will be put in a quilt for next year.
At our next sew day we will be going over each quilt removing pieces of thread and getting them ready for the quilt show on Sept. 23rd.

What a wonderful group you are! That top quilt is definitely quick and fun. A great way to use some of the military prints that are out. I had to look up where Wayne County is, and sadly, it's the other side of the state from me. =P I'm in Knox County. I would definitely join you ladies if I were within an hour, just for the fun of quilting with others who love these quilts as much as I do!
