American Hero Quilts & A Play

A couple of weeks ago Cindy, Wilma & I went to Vashon Island & delivered quilts to American Hero Quilts. We also had the priveledge of packing up quilts that will be sent to Afghanistan to the wounded warriors at Bagram.

Each quilt has it's picture taken & a card from AHQ is attached before it is packed in a box. We processed 101 quilts! Amazing!

Here are a few pictures. The bags of quilts we brought with us. Most made by the Stanwood-Camano Hero Quilters.
Cindy & Wilma had the "ladder" detail.
I was the packer.
Here are just a few of the quilts from that day.

Do you have any plans this coming weekend? Our Hero Quilt sew day is on Saturday at the Stanwood Senior Center from 10-3:30 if you'd care to join us. Always fun & good food!

Also there is a play about American Hero Quilts.
Here's what the Sequim Gazette had to say about the play. Wilma was fortunate & saw the play on Sunday. Uniformed soldiers read some of the letters that American Hero Quilts gets from soldiers & their families. I think you might need a tissue for that!

Have a great week. I still have pictures from the CIQ Quilt Show to post. Be sure & check back!
