Sunflower Quilt - Quilted

My Sunflower quilt is quilted! Love the Quilter's Dream Wool batting I used. It really shows the quilting. I used the Quilt EZ swirls on this quilt.
The back:

The binding has been sewn to the front but not sewn to the back yet. I will be sending this to a friend to do for me.

Quilts of Valor Across America Road Trip

The Quilts of Valor truck was in Warrenton on Wednesday. Here are a few of the photos I took. You can follow their road trip to Camp Lejeune here.

Quilts of Valor Across America is a journey to collect quilts from across the country – their destination Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for the wounded Marines and Navy Corpsmen of Company 3/8 returning from Afghanistan. A group will leave Valley Springs, California with pick up destinations in Salt Lake City, Denver, Lincoln, Kansas City , Warrenton, St. Louis (just added) and Knoxville Tennessee. By June 12, 2009, these beautiful handcrafted quilts will reach Camp Lejeune and the deserving men and women of our armed forces.

If you are a quilter visit the QOV website to learn how you can help.
The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL war wounded and injured servicemembers and veterans from the War on Terror whether physical or psychological wounds with Wartime quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVS). Or as a six year old put it, "When the 'sholders' are 'warring' and they come home and are hurt, the quilt makes them feel all comfy." This foundation is not about politics. It's about people.

If you love Moda charm packs you won't want to miss this giveaway at Twiddletails. Anina is giving away a Moda Oh-Cherry-Oh charm pack.

I'm still here!

I'm still here I just don't have any pictures to share with you. I quilted the Batik rail fence quilt but didn't get any pictures (rainy day) before a took it to the customer. I will get some soon (I hope). I'm getting ready to piece the backing for my Batik Sunflower quilt. I am planning on quilting it this weekend with the wool batting.

I just came across these links to tutorials from Simply this, that and the other and I thought you would enjoy them too.

Be back soon with pictures.
