Quilts of Valor is a wonderful organization dedicated to making quilts for Veterans. Lots of amazing quilters stitch up tons of gorgeous works of art to thank those that have served. They’re having a silent auction fundraiser at America Quilts Expo in Des Moines, Iowa. I was invited to make a quilt! I used my Georgia’s Dresden pattern.
My pattern is named for my great-grandmother. The quilt I inherited from her is a pretty little 1930’s dresden. Her son Lynn was a B-24 pilot in the Army Air Corps during WWII. So I named the quilt Georgia’s Gratitude!
I quilted up a storm on this one since it’s a wall hanging. I did infinity loops on all the wedges and shells in the background. Plus a fun little flower in the middle!
It was such an honor to be able to contribute to this organization! I hope my quilt finds a wonderful home!! I not so secretly want to keep it. You can see all the quilts here.
