Every so often I get questions from blog readers that I think other blog readers would like the answer to as well. When that happens, I answer the questions here on the blog. Today is one of those days.
I had LOTS of people respond to the wonderful QOV (Quilt of Valor) that Doreen worked on and M. Smith made as part of our charity project. You can read about it here if you missed it.
There were several people who wanted to know the measurements needed for a QOV. I asked Doreen and she said, “Minimum size is 55″x 65″ and the largest size is 72″x 90″.”
Terri L writes, “Jo, I would love to donate a quilt top, but have a few questions. Size requirements? Do they need to be Red , White and Blue? and most important, do we send them to you or directly to QOV representative?”
The quilts are typically some type of red, white and blue…red and white is fine. There are all sorts. If you do a google search of “Quilts of Valor” and look at the images there are MANY.
Anyone who wants to make a QOV top can send them to me…I’ll get them to Doreen. Any help from blog readers to help with Quilts of Valor is greatly appreciated….as always you can email me at email@example.com.
Jan Ochterbeck also commented on the QOV post she said, “Quilts of Valor is such a worthy cause and the veterans always seem to appreciate them so much. You may be aware of the block drive that Alycia in Colorado is spearheading, but other QOV groups are welcome to make blocks and quilts for local and regional needs as well. Alycia is featuring a block I designed for QOV, and the tutorial can be found on my blog here: http://thecolorfulfabriholic.blogspot.com/2016/08/lcts-for-qov.html or on her blog at http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2016/08/quilts-of-valor-block-drive-time.html” I checked that out. It seems that they are looking for people to make quilt blocks. There’s a way to help if you don’t want to make a whole quilt!!
Next question came from Mary Jo after she saw my finished “H” quilt, “Beautiful as always – hope Ruby is not under the weather. Probably at the end of a long week she is too tired to pose on a quilt.”
Actually Ruby was out with a the neighbor girl. Since my foot surgery I’ve had the neighbor girl take Ruby and walk her a few times a week. The neighbor girl is nine and we’ve become fast friends. Ruby loves her and loves getting out of the house with her…I love her too. She’s a real sweetie.
Here’s a snap shot of the Ruby hanging with Kayla over the weekend.
Ruby is fine and well.
