Quilts for Soldiers

Filed under: In Memoriam,Medical — williamthecoroner @ 07:34

It was started by a Maryland quilt guild. The quilters wanted to provide a quilt for every wounded service member coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan. There were more soldiers than quilters, and the project expanded. It is now called Quilts of Valor. Anne Bonney has made one, here it is at the Lake Farmpark Quilt Show.
Here is a photo of the interior of a C-17 Globemaster returning with the servicemen and the quilts.

  1. I’m delighted to say that I’ve made two quilts for this group over the last couple of years, and am about to start a third. They’re good people, and it’s a good cause. If you quilt, please check them out.

  2. Good people, doing good things, it IS the American way, no direction from the Administration, just a desire to help. God Bless them all!
