Q.O.V.

I first posted about the Quilts of Valor here http://cjcal4now.blogspot.com/2007/07/vip-mail.html These are quilt for injured soldiers. You will find the links for Q.O.V in the post linked above.
Here is the first of two quilt tops completed for Quilts of Valor.
And a close-up. The second one is three quarters done and very similar. So, in a couple of days, when you think you are seeing double, hopefully you won't be. :-)

My husband went to the mountains last weekend for a man's getaway. We were chatting about the weekend on Sunday afternoon and he says, "Oh, I brought you pinecones. Your gonna like them." And he hops up to go to the car. I'm thinking, Oh, great, what am I gonna do with foot long pinecones. We saw 12" long pinecones the last time we were up there and I commented on them. So I figured that he remembered and was kind enough to bring some home for me.


Aren't these just the cutest pinecones you ever saw? He was right, I do like them.

That's a great top! The colors are wonderful and cozy. I'm sure it will be a treasured possession for a soldier.
