Valor Quilt Bee in honor of Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day to all service men and women ! The MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept has always wanted to honor veteran's by making a Quilt of Valor ...... however, knowing our track record of UFO's we knew not to start yet ANOTHER project that would most likely wind up in the "best of intentions" and "bright ideas" pile. Well, recently I stumbled across the Valor Quilt Bee blog . This is an online quilting bee that is " a low-maintainance, NO PRESSURE group!
Each person participates WHEN and TO WHAT EXTENT they feel like.
Each person sews whatever style they like best!" You can contribute a few blocks a year or a few blocks a month or just once and done. Blocks should measure 6", 9", or 12" in "Americana" colors. How PERFECT is THAT ?!?!?!!!!!! NO PRESSURE !!! NO complete quilt .... just a quilt block here and there ... or just here ..... I'm telling you, this is the PERFECT set up ! So, I rustled up some of my red , whites, and blues and .....

..stitched up Valor Quilt Bee block #1 (with hopefully many more to follow .... but no pressure .... isn't that GREAT!!)

Be back soon!
