    Good luck with your turnout! Our guild is also sponsoring Quilts of Valor and this is the theme for our quilt show this year. www.amadorvalleyquilters.org is our website - psailer and others can see some of the patterns we are making.

    We have done sew-athons quite successfully. I hope you have similar results!
