    Charity Quilts sale to benefit our Veterans

    Our Guild holds a biennial show on the odd years and this past February in the show, we had a charity quilt sale to benefit our Veterans..... The quilt, hangings, table toppers, etc......had to be red, white & blue to honor our Vets. It was a huge success.
    Here is my donation....it is all paper pieced and I loved doing it. We had 51 quilts donated and we sold all but a very few and these few were also donated to the Veterans for their use.

    Oh my! That's a truly beautiful quilt!

    I trust it sold for $$$.
    As much as I hate it, my seam ripper is my best friend.

    Beautiful. What a wonderful thing for your group to do. This country doesn't do nearly enough for our troops.

    now that's stunning!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What an awesome way to honor out vets. Love your quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Ditto to what has been said. BrendaK
    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.
