    American Veterans Project.....

    This is an ongoing project. thank you to every one that has donated fabic, orphan blocks, quilts, etc.....
    It's been a long year.. family issues, several deaths, lots of traveling back and forth to family funerals, FLU's!!, camera crash, computer crash ( times 2!) among other issues.... *sigh* I'm glad that year is behind me...

    I've salvaged a few pics ( many were lost) of a few quilts that went out to our Veterans. I'd like to also report that our local Veterans of Foriegn Wars Aux along with a local 4-H girls group, obtained 50+ yards of red, white and blue fabric and have begun making pillow cases for Veterans ( especially for homeless Veterans to carry their belongings and laundry in, but pillowcases also go to clinics & long term therapy Veterans) I'm proud to report that the VFW Aux also donated 11 twin size, 9 full size tacked quilts for our American Veterans ( largely from fabric donated from QB members)

    Again, thank you to EVERYONE that has donated to this cause.

    Thank you for your wonderful work. My son has been in the military for 13 years and I know how much they all appreciate the hard work.
