Pillowcases from Emily

Emily made these pillowcases for Quilts of Valor and here is what she says:

My name is Emily L. and I have been helping my mom make quilts for Binky Patrol for a couple of years. She told me about the quilts you make for the wounded soldiers. I wanted to help out so she suggested I make some pillowcases to put the quilts in. I helped make 12 of these pillowcases and wanted to say thank you to the men and women who serve our country. I realize that they sacrfice alot so I can have freedom. I know that it is only a small thing, but if everyone did something, they would feel like we all care.

Thanks Emily!! These are awesome!

If you know of a unit that is in Iraq or Afghanistan, you can always send extra pillowcases to them. I did that for my cousin while he was in Iraq and he and his fellow Marines were so thankful to have a CLEAN place to lay their heads. You can contact a local church or recruitment center to see who is deployed at this time. Thank you for all you work and for remembering the men and women who serve our country.
