Susan Palmer has dedicated 1 week to quilting American Hero Quilts. Here is one of the many she has finished so far. She started on Sept. 1 & will quilt every day through the 8th. She got fellow guild members & fellow long arm quilters to join her. A quilter in Sisters Oregon e-mailed a commitment to quilt 25 AHQ quilts this week! Our Stanwood-Camano Hero Quilters have given her 50+ and 50 from a group in Coupeville. I am going to help tomorrow with taking quilts on & off the machine. I'll take more pictures & post an update later this weekend.
All of the quilts go to wounded soldiers, mostly at the Wounded Warrior Unit at Ft Lewis. Some have been sent to Bagram in Afghanistan. Check here & here for moving testimonials about these lovely quilts. You might need a kleenex.
I"ll be back soon. 26 days & counting...........................Nana Sharon
