Quilts of Valor

Hi Kay - 4 blocks in the mail to you today, and I've invited a couple of quilting friends to contribute as well, assuming that you will accept their efforts, even if they don't own Airstreams

OF COURSE I'll accept blocks from your friends! This is more about quilts for military wounded than about Airstreams as far as I'm concerned. Thank you so much to people mailing blocks!

Kay

Two in my quilting group are beset by family health problems this week so we are not getting together until possibly next week. Like Nancy, if my group doesn't get to make blocks in time before your retreat, I'll do a few more and send them to you with the three I"ve done. You are so GOOD to take this on! ~G

I don't have to have the blocks for the retreat. I will do the quilt whenever I get them. Don't stress out too much about it!

I was just kidding about the airstream ownership of quilters who contribute to your project, Kay. My nephew is in the military (one tour of duty i Iraq and is currently in Afghanistan), so your project hit close to my heart. I'm delighted that you appear to be getting such a generous response from this group and their friends, and since you indicate you'll be able to use blocks even if they come in after your retreat, you may get a few additional ones from me.

Here's the secret to making a Zinnia Pillow, buy the pillow forms (I got mine at Hobby Lobby about $10 each) 1- 18" x 18" and 2 -14" x 14" are shown above. Each fabric front is one fat quarter, the backs are vintage fabrics from my stash, each zinnia will require 1/2 yd of felt (I used wool felt by the bolt). Trace a large dinner plate on right side of each leaving 4" spacing to the edge. Cut about 50- 3 1/2" circles from felt and 25 - 2 1/2" circles, cut your circles in half. Lay the straight edge of the circle "petal" on the line you drew with the curve of the half circle "petal" facing the outer edge, sew your petal on overlapping the next petal as you go. Once you get to the 3rd row of circles you will switch to the smaller size petal, as you get to the center you will need to put a pleat in each petal to get the material to curve, this makes the center stand up as you go. When you get to the very middle sew a small piece of felt in the center and stuff. I hope this inspires you to make one or a few for the camper!

Kay, my group of quilting friends met today at our local quilt shop and produced 24 valor blocks--we oooed and ahhhed over each one as it was completed Some additional blocks wil be coming to me tomorrow, so I'll mail the collection to you on Friday. Hopefully, they'll be what you are expecting, arrive in time for your retreat, and will make up into some pretty quilts for our wounded warriors. Thanks again for introducing this worthy project to us. We had great fun at our quilting party today. Everyone left feeling that she had taken part in something much larger than our local group. My friends asked if you would be able to post pictures here of the quilts made from these blocks when they are finished, if not too much trouble. Thanks again, ~Georgia
