(C) Mary Johnson –

I haven’t made my quilt yet … But here’s Tanya’s version.

I started a QOV group in January through the quilt guild. We are called the Patriotic Piecemakers. I am so proud of our group because we have made over 40 QOV quilts so far this year. The next big deadline is November for 160 Vietnam Veterans. There are several other QOV groups in Missouri who are helping us to reach this goal. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful patterns!
