Throwback…..Wednesday?

Tomorrow is a rather big bloggy day around here, it will be the reveal for the 4th round of the Gwenny Inspired QAL. So in light of that, I decided to post a Throwback Wednesday edition here today.

You all know that I do lots of quilting for Quilts of Valor. I also used to do lots of piecing for them! The following quilts are some of the very first QOVs that I made. I pieced the tops and did the quilting myself.

I pulled out  and used up lots of red, white, and blue stash on these!

I made these when Daughter #2 was serving her first deployment back in 2012. Time is a funny thing. It seems like a long time ago and yet it feels like just yesterday!

Linking up with A Quarter Inch from The Edge (link up starts on Thursday).

    I can’t believe how much you get accomplished! It makes me feel like I am lazy. Wonderful job on the QOVs.

    Those are great quilts Katy. Love the first one, might have to try that, looks like a good use of scraps.

    I love your Quilts of Valor ! RWB is such a clean combination. I sew many tops a year for QoV, and have even quilted several on my Juki DSM. Such a good feeling to be able to give these to someone who deserves them. Just wondering what part of the country you live in? I am in MN [where my QoV group is] for the summer, and AZ for the winter.
