American Hero Quilt


Our quilt group is participating in the American Hero Quilt project and making a quilt for a returning soldier hospitalized at Madigan here in Washington. Shirley designed the quilt which is to be made of Sawtooth Stars. Well, the flying geese part fought me all the way, so Irene showed us how she does it. ( Susan Nixon told me that she uses Eleanor Burns's ruler.)

Dear Judy,
how nice that your quilt group participates a social project like this. It is good, when one his hobby for these purposes can use. I think you get so much gratitude from the people back.
Even a nice evening and many greetings to you from Bavaria

Judy, very cool that you and your group are doing a quilt for AmHero. I have had the honor of quilting some of the beautiful quilts for them. A very good project to be a part of.

Well, you're right. I wasn't on here. I don't know where I went. LOL! This is going to be a beautiful quilt top. I love the bright colored blue.
