This one was made by the newest member of our quilt group - she is a quilter!!!! She did a great job.
Four different people made this quilt happen. Karen made the 16 patches, a friend made them into a quilt top, Anne quilted it and I did the binding. Totally a group effort.
The pattern from this quilt is from Alycia's latest QOV Mystery. The directions made this one super easy to make. We are donating this quilt to the group who is building a Veteran's Park in our county. I hope it brings in a bunch of donations.
I think the name of this pattern is "Home of the Brave". Another quilt that went together with no problems. You piece it in vertical rows.
Yes, this is it for the Vet quilts for this year. Now we are praying that it doesn't rain on Saturday until 2:30 when the quilt show ends.
Here is a copy of the flyer that Anne, quilt shop owner, sent out on Facebook, members of the guilds she belongs to and all guilds within 100 miles of Wayne County.
FABRIK Emporium Newsletter
Quilt for Vets Quilt Show and Country Fair
On, the FABRIK Emporium located at
2014 Old Beech Creek Rd. in Waynesboro will host a Quilt for Vet's
Quilt Show and Country Fair. Approximately 50 quilts will be
displayed. These quilts are for the Veteran's of the Korean War and
will be distributed on Veteran's Day (). Last year, many
people mentioned that they could not see the gorgeous quilts as the
vets were wrapped in them so the idea of a quilt show was born. In
addition to the quilts, there we will have opening festivities, where
Steve Allbright, senior advisor to Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn,
Representative David Byrd and County Executive Jim Manbugat will
deliver short comments honoring our vets. We will have Dennis
McMaster playing some patriotic music during this presentation. The
American Legion will be presenting the colors. Throughout the event,
Picken Crows and local gospel singer Murray Paul Gordon will entertain. We have a very special food vendor--Dewey's Cajun Shack will be providing their wonderful Cajun Food. There will also be many other goodies/treats available. Hint: it is
round, fried with apples!!! We have numerous crafters and community
organizations also in attendance. Additional information and
directions call 931-676-3253 Thurs and Fri 10-4 and Sat 10-3.
