Quilts of Valor - Presentations!!

Truth:   I LOVE making Quilts of Valor - 

but the Real Truth: I LOVE the smiles that show up on our Veterans faces when they get wrapped in one!!!

They always thank us for coming - but they have no idea how much of a honor it is to be able to wrap them in love!!


This group is one of the best
( Okay - they all are - I am not biased or anything)
This was at the end of January


 You all probably don't know this
but my cell phone Panorama skills are really growing 
This was the first take!!



This was a fun group too
The Quilter that set it up did a fantastic job
She was going to try to make it a surprise, but we all know how hard that is

After the presentation though - the one that really helped the quilter the most said
Okay - this was a LOT more than I expected
and a total surprise

So I guess it worked!!

I was at my mother-in-law's house for our Wednesday visit when you posted these great pictures. I had a chance to show them to her and she thought it was great. She tried to see what the patterns were which just can't be done well on my phone. Love your pictures Alycia!
