I am working with a group of quilters who make and give out quilts for our returning wounded soldiers, help is needed, so I am asking everyone who visits here to consider helping.
Below is a note from Sue, founder of American Hero Quilts, you can visit the website at
American Hero Quilts - Our Story
This is from Sue Nebeker <http://www.american heroquilts. com> - "there
are so many wounded and so few quilts or tops coming in at the
moment. If you have the time to make a top, it would be greatly
loved and appreciated.
In addition I have sent out seven quilts in the last two weeks to
families who have young men who came back and killed themselves. I
have two military bases who have sent requests for quilts for
children and the numbers increase as I get them. I got a spread
sheet from Alaska of all the children and when I asked for
clarification of spelling on one of them she added three more names!
Even if you can just make a baby quilt, that would be fabulous."
If you can only make a block or two, feel free to and they will be added to other blocks and put into tops. If you can make blocks let me know at ...firstname.lastname@example.org..... I will give you the address to send them to so they can be combine with other blocks into a top.
Perhaps you don't sew so you can't make blocks or tops, but you could donate money toward batting, Sue's address is on the website above. Consider sending just $10.00 to help with the batting which Sue is buying most of with her own money.
Please, please help if you can.
Thank you and may God Bless
