Feb quilts & awards

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!)

Feb 9 we made some more quilts:

1/26/17 Presidential Volunteer Service Awards–black tie and all

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!

1/19-1/22 Road to CA

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.img_8239
