Nebraskas National Quilt Day Sew in

Lincoln Quilt Guild sponsors National Quilt Day at the International Quilt
Study Center & Museum, here in Lincoln every year.  

 This year only Quilts of Valor group was asked to meet and greet guests and display our QOV's.

Our local QOV group has been very busy to ensure we had plenty of quilts to display.  

It's free admission and quilting related demos, lectures and tour the current exhibitions in the museum.

And here are the Quilts that Julias group worked on - be sure to let them know what you think!!

Both of these ( top and bottom) are dissappearing 9 Patches - Joan in the Black is known as the DNP queen!! She Quilted these too.  Ginny ( top left) pieced the top quilt, and Joan pieced the bottom one!

This one is a Go Cutter Tumbler Quilt - pieced by Ginny and Sharon
This is scrappy Stars pieced by Sharon ( on the right)

Those are some amazing Quilts of Valor ladies!! Can't wait to see the photos of them hanging in the  Quilt Museum!!!  Thanks for sharing.

  4. Fantastic photos!!! National Quilting Day will be a great day to share excitement about Quilts of Valor!

  5. I want to send a big Thank You to the Nebraska QOV group. My father, a Navy veteran of WWII, is 86 years old and in very poor health. Yesterday he recieved his QOV.
    To say it made his day and ours as a family to see him so honored is quite an understatement.
