    Here are some pictures of a group of 82 different American Hero Quilts that I quilted. Again for people pieced the quilt tops and I quilted them.

    Thanks,
    Sherryl

    PS -
    I was trying to get a good shot of all 82 American Hero quilts that I quilted in honor of what would have been my dad's 82nd birthday (just a few months after he past away). I was going to have a poster type board made up to take to his grave to show him what I did in his honor.

    You should be proud. You know that he is. What a great way to pay tribute to your father.

    I would pass on the connection to your dad to the people who receive your quilts. Every one of the people that I have met who received a quilt from QOV always ask what motivated/inspired the quilt and my participation. If they have been given, drop them a note to mention your dad. I know that they would appreciate knowing that part of your story.

    That is awesome! I just finished another American Hero top & it is ready to be quilted. But I only manage 4 or 5 a year!
