We are three days into the New Year, and I am already in the negative column in my Stash Report!  😉

But I haven’t thrown caution to the winds  — I am planning ahead with my purchases.

The red polka dot is going into a Soldier quilt for Alycia’s No Soldier Forgotten project, which will be one of my HeartStrings projects this year.

The turquoise is for my older daughter’s birthday quilt, and the plum, violet and green are all for UFOs that I plan to finish this year.

I have also mail-ordered some other fabrics, but they haven’t arrived yet — the white muslin for the turquoise quilt, and a few other things that I already have specific plans for.   I hope that is “smart buying.”  🙂

My total fabric bought is 2.5 metres, which translates to about 2.75 yards.  I haven’t done any real sewing this week, but I am hoping to make a start on something this afternoon!  Got that design wall to think about for tomorrow!

I have found the Quilts of Valor group for the UK, thanks to information from one of the American QOV coordinators, and I have now joined them as a volunteer.  I am going to make quilt tops and pillowcases.

Contact details for the UK coordinator can be found on the main Quilts of Valor website, along the lefthand side of the Home page.  Or you can contact me, and I can give you the email address.

I am so excited about the opportunity to participate in this worthwhile and uplifting project.  I am an American, and I was very happy to have made a few things for the American group.  With the UK group, I will now be able to show my appreciation to service personnel in the country where I presently make my home with my wonderful family.

If you live in the UK and have been thinking about doing some volunteer quilting work for a worthy cause, please think about joining Quilts of Valor – UK.

My first project?  Well, I have these beautiful Makower coordinates just languishing in my stash….
