Quilts of Valor Day 2 with Iowa 4H

Quilts from the Bluffs met today with 8 girls from the local 4-H to complete the quilt tops they started last month.  We were successful in having four completed tops made by the girls and one that was made as the sample.  These will not be sent off to the longarm volunteer quilters to be quilted and we will regroup in June to sew the binding and attach a label to each quilt.

Here are some pictures to share of our day.  For more pictures, please go to our FaceBook page.

The group.

Every quilt will be presented in a pillowcase.
