Sorry, I was out of the loop for a while. I had shoulder surgery on Feb 3 and just got out of the sling this week, but am still lacking use of my arm, so I fell way behind!
Feb 7 I took 5 quilts to LBVA blind center to be awarded at their graduation.
Feb 8 we presented 16 quilts in Palm Desert. Photos to follow. I was given prints, but when I scan they come up at pdf, and I can only import jpeg. Another project for another day (unless someone has a clue what to do!)

Several people were honored with a special pin, letter and certificate from the President to recognize their community volunteer works. There was one bronze award, I got the silver and another got lifetime! It was an elegant event in Monrovia including dinner and drinks. I had several friends, fellow volunteers and my youngest daughter’s family in attendance. I even got to surprise two people with Quilts of Valor–one was another award recipient!
We had our booth at Road to CA Quilters Conference. Got to reunite with old friends and meet lots of new friends and long-arm quilters. Several people brought in quilt tops or completed quilts, and a few long-arm quilters took quilts home our tops and backs to be quilted. There were lots of interesting quilts on display and vendors galore!
I took 6 quilts to LBVA, so that makes 10 so far this year. I was invited to the meeting of the Orange County Sons of the American Revolution to do a quilt for a WWII Veteran.He wasn’t in attendance, but I was awarded the oak leaf cluster for the Martha Washington ribbon/pin. And, I got a certificate.
