Quilts of Valour

IMG_1992In honour of upcoming Rememberance day and the 100th Anniversay of World War 1 I am posting about a great project I was lucky enough participate in.  IMG_1989

At a recent Creative Stitches show the Quilts of Valour people had a booth with a set up of cute mugs.  When I asked what they were I learned about their Hugs Project (or Hugs from across the Nation).  I don’t have time right now to make a full quilt for the Quilts of Valour but I can easily make a block to help get quilts made!  I picked up a mug which came with the pattern for a shoofly block and the fabric to make it.

I have my block all ready and ready to send off to be put together into a quilt.  I am looking forward to making more of these in my spare time to help get more quilts to soldiers.  For more information on the project check out the Quilts of Valour website.
