Quilts of Valor updates

On Saturday, I had the honor of presenting a veteran, returning from a deployment, of a Quilts of Valor quilt.  First, was the flag line (which I also got to be a part of).

After several presentations, I got to do my presentation.

On Tuesday, we had another Quilts of Valor sew-in at a quilt store in Yorkville, IL, Sewing, Etc.  We had several finished quilts, and a few quilt tops handed over to our local chapter. I thought you might want to see them.

If you are near the Chicago area, the next sew-in will be on Tuesday, May 7th at Prairie Shop Quilts in Batavia, IL.  We'd love to see you there!

  2. How thrilling for you Cheryl! That must have been so satisfying for you to actually see him get his quilt :*) What a wonderful service you do for our veterans!

  3. Love the presentation, and the quilts were lovely. Thanks for sharing.
    Are you near Exuberant Color... Wanda Hanson? She mentions Batavia, IL and I think in connection to QOV. (If so, what a small world - two of my favorite bloggers!)

  4. What a lovely welcome home! Great job on everyone's part. Thanks for sharing the quilt. Gives me an idea or two of what to make for our Canadian Quilts of Valour.
