Last week I told you about quilt tops that Debbie had sent. I had said the three of them I was passing on to my friend Doreen who is a driving force in a local Quilts of Valor group. Well Doreen came by and picked the up…and of course, in typical Doreen style, brought me goodies.
Check them out….It’s a scrap box of Kaffe prints. YAHOO!!
She sent these as I always tell of my love of stars and polka dots. Doreen is so thoughtful.
…and she didn’t forget the kiddos.There were all sorts of goodies for them.
Doreen is so sweet. She was thrilled to get the donated tops. Gradually the group she works with is catching up with Quilts of Valor for our county. In four years or so that they have been working at it, they have done about 100 quilts a year. Impressive for a small group…right??

These will be put together and passed along to those veterans. If anyone wants to make quilt tops that are in patriotic colors, Doreen will happily find the quilts a home. As always, many hands make light work.
