Quilts for Soldiers

Since I didn't get back in town in time to post this photo for Wordless Wednesday, I will post the story with the photo.

Our quilting group has made over 200 lap quilts to be presented to wounded military in rehab at Brooks and Ft. Hood. Most of our members have some present or past connection with the military and craft the quilts with prayer and concern for the intended recipients. Funds for the project came from our members originally, then grew with donations from friends, family, and the community.

We rarely hear where the quilts go, but the few stories we do hear renew our resolve as we cut, pin, sew, and pack our appreciation along with the quilts, in specially made bags for presentation to one of our military. If you know of someone who has received one of our specially marked quilts, we would love to hear her /his story or enjoy a visit.
