Have been working on the VFW/QOV project.  I now have a longarmer on board.  Hope to get another one or two, but will have to wait and see.  The ladies Auxiliary is ready for a sew-in. 
Got blocks yesterday from a Stashbuilders partner.  Sew it looks like I will be moving along with this project nicely.

It's been weeks since I posted anything, I know.  So here is the scoop.  I volunteered to make QOV type quilts for the VFW that I'm a ladies auxiliary member. 
I will be making 50 quilt for the veterans by Veteran's Day 2013.  I am following the QOVF guidelines.  I have several ladies helping me out with piecing the tops.  The LQS is providing batts at cost + s&h.  Less then $10.00 ea.  I am still looking for longarmers to quilt the quilts for free. 
My SIL is coordinating the Ladies Auxiliary, by collecting material and cutting fabric.  I have 2 LQS helping with getting the word out and being drop off sites for tops and materials.
Today I will get the 2nd quilt top done.  I need 3 quilts for the WWII veterans and a membership quilt by this Veteran's Day.  I'm sure that I will make that one. And hope that with volunteers I can get the rest done in time for 2013.

Will Keep you posted.
