Hopefully you recognize a few of these quilts?  Oh my gosh you all - these were SO loved!! WE have a mix of Veterans here - from WWII to Iraq!! Can you believe it?  And there were not too many dry eyes in the house - These Veterans were just so appreciative.



Back to our Block Drive! Check out what Quilt Diva Julie  has made
I linked to her whole post and then stole a photo  ( THanks Julie!!)


Aren't those awesome!!

What a wonderful thing, to wrap our veterans in love. They've given so much of themselves just for us. It looks like the block drive is off to a great start!

Julie's blocks are awesome. What a delight to see so many receive their quilts at your meetings. I love it when they come to our quilting days so we can present them in person and see their faces. It is such an honor. Thanks for all you do too.
