    Quilt of Valor

    I made this quilt for a gentleman who served ten (10) yrs. in the Army and ten (10) yrs. in the Air Force. He was surprised when I presented it to him. We are fellow campers and he is such a wonderful person.

    That's amazing. Looks like you really touched him. Please thank him for me for his service. You did a wonderful thing I know that he will remember it for a long time. BrendaK

    What a kind & wonderful act of kindness you did for your friend & our hero. That is a beautiful quilt that he will cherish all his life. The photos of him during his military days was perfect for this quilt. Absolutely beautiful and thank you for sharing it with us.

    you are great--so touching! my local guild provided quilts of appreciation to all our county (rural) Vets from WWII(yes, a few left) to present--took 3years and still have new ones but those Vets were so touched! Especially, the VN Vets who felt really left out.

    That was so sweet of you and it obviously moved him more than anyone might have thought it would. That's a super feel good moment.
