Quilt of Valor

After having so much trouble with the technical side of this blog, I am cautiously posting on my blog today. I won't push my luck and try to post more than one picture as additional photos seem to disappear.

This was a quilt that my friend Karen and I made for the Quilt of Valor Foundation. This organization is trying to make a quilt for all returning veterans. So far, over 33,000 quilts have been made. They have specific guidelines as they want it to be a certain size and quality.They also want a journal to accompany the quilt. We were glad to make it.

There is another organization called Quilts of Honor that is also making quilts for veterans. My next donation will be through them as they are more local to me. Each is reaching out to the the men and women who serve.

Wonderful cause and beautiful quilt. To me it can mean thank you, and welcome and home and security and comfort, all in one. A fine gesture. I am sure the returning soldiers will value the quilts for years.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Hi Sandra, Stunning quilt; it looks very nicely done too. I'm sure it will be honored and appreciated.

I enjoyed scrolling through your recent posts. I like the grids and circles; interesting designs!
