QOV Block Drive Update

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you that I've got lots of wonderful blocks coming in from some very generous people for our QOV Eastern MO Block Drive.  But before I show you the latest arrivals, I think it's time to show you some of the prizes that are being donated for the drawing.

Two (2) spools of Glide Thread- from my friend Ann of Attic Threads and Quilts  

A $50 gift certificate - from The Stencil Company

Two (2) kits with fabric - from Patch Abilities Inc.

Two (2) patterns from Kathy Schmitz - "Be Mine" and "Little Acorns"

Fons and Porter Ergonomic Seam Ripper - from an anonymous donor
 

A "Learn to Quilt" Kit includes a Friendship Star Quilt pattern, Easy Angle Ruler & Quilter's pins

Several fat quarter bundles, threads from Connecting Threads and more to come later.

Now for the blocks.  This last week I received these.
On the Left -from Katy VW- MO;  On the Right - from Lee B - MO

12 from Rita B - MO plus another 12 HST 

12 blocks from Pat H - Florida 

These were the other HST from Rita. I added the red and blue strips to the darker side since she made the light blocks and we are not getting as many of the darker blocks.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE GREAT BLOCKS WE HAVE GOTTEN SO FAR.

We are doing well with the block drive.  Remember we are accepting blocks until the end of the year, so you still have time to make a few and get them in the mail before Santa comes.   

A step by step tutorial is HERE.   You can send blocks to me at the address below.  
Thank you so much. I know the veterans appreciate receiving these wonderful quilts from all of us.
