I'm taking advantage of the "Any Photo" theme to post a couple of quilt tops that I finished recently for the American Hero Quilts project. They will be quilted by long-arm machine quilters to be given to injured military personnel.
From the initial delivery of one hundred quilts to Madigan Army Medical Hospital near Tacoma after a week long quilt-a-thon organized by my friend Sue on Vashon Island, the effort has expanded to thousands of quilters, and thousands of quilts have been delivered to the wounded.
Besides American Hero Quilts, there are several other projects enlisting quilters in projects in support of our military. Quilts of Valor has also presented thousands of quilts to the wounded from the War on Terror. The Home of the Brave Quilt Project makes memorial quilts for the families of fallen heroes.
As the Quilts of Valor website says: "it's not about politics, it's about people."
All three organizations can always use your assistance--even if you are not a quilter. Check their websites to see what you can do.
