Quilts of Valor on Tuesday

Tuesday was a Quilts of Valor sew-in day at Sewing, Etc. in Yorkville, IL (great shop).
I didn't get any pictures of the quilts (sorry) but, I did get the important picture.  We were honored to get to award not one, but two Quilts of Valor to a father and son. 
Mr Miller and Mr Miller
The father served in WWII, and the son served during Vietnam.  What a special presentation it was.  We got to hear some great stories from Mr. Miller (father) about some of his exploits at the end of WWII. 

There are more pictures, included quilt pictures on the Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor blog, here.

  2. Yes, Thank you for your service, Cheryl, and all your buddies. I have made one, but that was for my hubby. I need 2 more for my sons.... one just retired from a career in the Air Force. He never was in combat, Thank you God, but he was in a number of very uncomfortable places in his 26 years.

    Love that the father and son, Mr. Miller and Mr. Miller, (you are a card!) got their quilts together, and you gave me a chuckle, as usual.
    Hugs

  7. Quilts of Valor is a great organization! My grandfather is still alive and in his early 90s. He served on the U.S.S. Enterprise at the end of World War II and is very proud of his ship. There are very few men left from that era.
