2011 Soldier Quilts

American Hero Quilts

That is the home page of the group with which I have been working for more than six years to create quilts for wounded American soldiers.

Machine Quilters are desperately need to quilt the tops the project receives. Many hundreds of quilts are given away each year, and there is always a need for more machine quilters. They are in need of battings and backings to complete the quilt tops people are sending. Red, White and Blue fabrics, and variations on those colors, are also needed. Click on the link above for more information, and how you can help with donations for postage, as well.
