A giveaway!!! And a QOV Mystery!!

******This drawing is now closed - the winner is Kelly at Praire Sage Quilts****** THANKS for playing!!!

Leann over at Persimmon Quilts  does a LOT of Quilt of Valor mystery patterns. She tests them on Lori, and a few others in the QOV group and then, once they are tested she releases them to us!!  She says that they are not super hard, there are 1/2 square triangles in them, but everyone can do these patterns.


She has launched a new one for this year - the fabric Requirements are up, and the cutting for the first clue. The first clue will be Jan 7th, and the last clue will be February 11th.


A LOT of you have said you are interested in trying to either make or quilt, or a combination of both  to be a part of the 12 Quilts of Valor challenge this year.... so .... I have a great giveaway for you!!! 


FABRIC to make this mystery!! It requires


Background.......... 2 1/2 yds
Blue....................... 1 1/2 yds

Red.......................  2 yds


and I HAVE it for you!!!  You will be a little behind, but hey - the pressure is there to make you work harder right LOL!


Now!! There are strings attached!! I am assuming that you will be making a Quilt of Valot with this fabric, and when you are done, you will either request a destination from the QOVF website, or present it locally.... right?

If you want to enter this drawing - leave a comment ( AND A WAY TO CONTACT YOU) on this post before Sunday January 8th. I will draw a number on the 8th, and will contact you - so I can get the fabric in the mail by Monday. You won't have too much to catch up on that way!!

Tell everyone about it, if there are more that 50 entries - I will find another set of fabric to giveaway!! 

This fabric was donated from my stash and not paid for by the QOV Foundation

  3. I'd be happy to enter the drawing; my husband and I are QOV longarmers here in Virginia; I made 3 QOVs last year in addition to the 9 QOVs we quilted for toppers. I'm always looking to add to my QOV stash, and having a "mystery" to do will give me an incentive to keep doing my own, too. You can reach me a kackerso@shentel.net. This is a great thing you are doing. How can I access the mystery site; (maybe I'm just not paying attention). Thanks, Kathy Ackerson

  6. I am doing both the HMQS challenge and the 12 QOV'S challenge and a little more fabric would help for both, going to do at least this first mystery and try to get some of my group to also do it.J Marie

  22. I am longarm quilter for Quilts of Valor and I need and "excuse" to make a quilt from scratch. I am very dedicated to QOV - my husband was in the USAF, my son-in-law is retired USAF and my daughter is a nurse in the USAF with two Iraqi deployments. I have had the privilege of presenting Quilts at RWW in Minneapolis, to veterans at the Tomah VA and a couple of local presentations. I would love to get the fabric and put it to good use.

  23. I would love to be the recipient of the BOM Mystery material so that one of the ladies in my QOV group can participate. She has very limited funds and I am usually her "sponsor".

    Thanks,
