Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of going to work with Operation Sew Thankful, a Raleigh area Quilts of Valor group. My friend Kari had asked me to donate my Designer Star pattern to the group and to come over and teach a mini class.
Everyone was so nice! That’s probably to be expected since they’re all volunteering for such a great group!! My talented friend Chrissy, who owns Sew Lux Fabric with her Mom, put together kits for the group. She’s keeping them available in case you’re interested in making a Quilt of Valor! She made this beauty in the class!!
Lisa, who runs Operation Sew Thankful, made this gorgeous version!! She’s actually sporting a Patchwork Threads shirt in this picture!
Sandy made another one from the Sew Lux kit! Love it!!
And sweet Nella made this! She’s working with the group to make a quilt for every veteran in her high school class.
This one turned out great too! Love the yellow!!
Kari made hers scrappy!! She used some really cool fabrics, including a plane print since this one is earmarked for an Air Force veteran!
Thanks for inviting me to your group Kari!! I loved meeting all of you!
