QOVs etc

I know it's been a very long time since I blogged. My bad!

As some of you may know, my daughter is an Army Captain stationed at the hospital at Ft. Stewart, Georgia.
I told her I was quilting a QOV (quilts of valor, quilts given to wounded soldiers) she wanted to know why they don't get any. So I started out to make quilts for them. In the last month I have 4 done. The first one was made with blocks that a friend made. I put them together with some solid white and quilted a star that I found on clip art. I went over each line several times with gold thread to make them stand out.
The second one was a quilt that was left over from ones we made for Katrina victims and the last 2 were made up with 2 1/2" strips and squares.
We will deliver them when we go out on the 23rd.

I got the borders put on the last one and will get it quilted and bound tomorrow.
I am asking/begging for red, white and blue fabric. If you have any to spare would you please consider donating it? I love what I'm doing but there is no way I can do it alone.
If you have some to donate, please message me for my address and thank you very much in advance.
