Quilt of Valor Follow-up

Yesterday, I was thrilled to see this post on County 10, a local online news site because at the bottom were photos of veterans being presented Quilts of Valor (QOV). I immediately recognized six of the quilts that I made this year. It felt good to see them draped around the shoulders of the veterans and to see the smiles on their faces.  (All photos were taken from the County 10 post)

Stephanie Logan, State QOV coordinator,
presented Greg Coats with Courage
Ed Anima selected Independence Day
for his Quilt of Valor
David Gardner was presented Humility
by state QOV coordinator, Stephanie Logan
Bill Puryear was given On the Hunt in honor of his service

John Scharmur liked the earth tones of
Lone Star

  6. I recognized 3 of the quilts as being ones you made and figured there might be more. I am glad I had a small part in "On the Hunt". To me, it made it extra special that these were disabled veterans and part of a program similar to wounded warriors.

  8. Awesome, Nancy! I clicked on the Courage link and I have to tell you I LOVE the lone red square. It speaks volumes to the character of the one who says "yes" to serving our country, and "Courage" is the perfect title. God bless you! ~ Nancy
