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.
