Veteran's Day ~ Quilt of Valor

A few days ago, Maureen E., of Portland, OR, emailed me a little story and this photo I thought I'd share with you.

It seems that Maureen saw my Plantation Stars 
pattern and thought it would look great in red, white and blue.

She bought the pattern so her Northwest Quilters Quilts of Valor volunteer group could make it.  

Actually, 91 year old Joy Nichols pieced the quilt, and Jane Ratcliff longarm quilted the quilt.

I adore their red, white and blue version and I am so, so honored they chose my Plantation Stars pattern to give to a veteran!!!   Thank you, QOV volunteers, for your hours of work making quilts to comfort our veterans!  

Today is Veterans Day

Let's honor all of our veterans, for their service and sacrifice to our country, and keep them in our hearts all the year though.



  1. Thank you, Pam, for that beautiful pattern -- just perfect for a Quilt of Valor! We look forward to wrapping it around a veteran a little later this year.

  2. That's a beautiful story Pam. I agree, your pattern looks great in Red, White & Blue.

  3. That patriotic quilt is one of the most beautiful ones I've seen!
