    Our guild makes quilts for the "Home of the Brave" (families of soldiers who have died) as well as "Quilts of Valor" (soldiers who have been wounded). Two of our guild members have lost sons to Iraq & Afghanistan over the passed two years. It has been heartwrenching to deliver these quilts to them, but also heart-warming to see how much these tokens of our appreciation for their sacrifice have meant to them. No matter how one stands politically, the loss of these young lives tears at the hearts of all of us.

    thanks for sharing. What a great program! Thanks to everyone that works on these for our soldiers. From having a boyfriend in the military.(Hopefully he gets to come home from Iraq next month) I know they all appreciate everything we do back here in the states for them.

    Thank you for the link and all the quilters who do this. As an aside, I loved her sewing room. Does anyone know anything about the iron she was using?
