Stash Report and Finished QOV Tops

This week has been productive for using my stash exclusively. I finished putting all the rest of the borders on the tops for QOV that have been pieced by friends and me.  There is one pillowcase made and bindings made for 4 Honor Flight quilts.  All in all, it's been a real Red, White and Blue week!

Here are more of the pieced tops from the QOV block drive and the Honor Flight quilts waiting for their bindings to be stitched down to the back.

This brings our totals of Finished Tops from the QOV Block Drive up to 11 so far. We still have more to go with a sewing day planned for Monday, February 13 at Troy, Missouri.  We are getting close to using all the blocks that were made and sent in for the drive.  Thank you again for your help in getting these quilts put together and on to the veterans who will appreciate your efforts too.

Here are the 4 Honor Flight quilts that will be given to the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight group which will be added to others and will be  presented to the next group of veterans that leave Lambert International Airport in March for their flight to Washington, DC.  There are usually between 25-30 on each flight and they take 3 or 4 groups each year from St. Louis.  These little lap quilts go fast since they requested the size to be 36 to 40 inches square.

My stash numbers reflect the fabrics used for borders, bindings, pillowcases and a repair to my DH's favorite quilt.  I did cut lots of strips and started on a project for Scrap Club, but have not counted any of that fabric yet.
