"Thank you for the awesome quilt for Jared.  As soon as he is in recovery, he can sleep with it.  The surfboards are perfect!  We appreciate your time and care."

CQ has been busy this month delivering quilts!  Another recent recipient, 17 year old Jared Springer, from Santa Barbara had received his quilt.  

CQ continues to keep Jared, along with all of quilt recipients in our thoughts and prayers.  Jared experienced an unknown brain injury and is currently on Day 20 of his journey to recovery.  He remains in a partial coma and his steps to recovery are slow.  

So glad he is able to enjoy his quilt!

postheadericon Quilts of Valor

There are many Angels among us, we just don't see their wings!  I wanted to share with you another woman I met through a Facebook Group called "Just Us Quilters".

This woman has single handedly started a fire storm of activity for the group members to send her 9 patch quilt blocks for the Quilts of Valor (QOV) campaign.  I simply had to share her amazing block.  I plan on sending her a few and if any of you quilters have a yen to do the same, look her up and read her instructions at "Just Us Quilters".  What an awesome and monumental project!

Her instructions on making these blocks can be found here:

This is what you send her:


And this is her disappearing 9 patch star she creates with the block you send her.  


Full pictorial of how she does this are in her blog.

Check her project out as always..,

God Bless America and those who serve yo protect and keep her strong!
