2011 Soldier 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.

favorite project. Nancy in WI sent a box with many of the stars, some star parts, and the light and blue fabrics. I completed
part blocks, added blocks, and put in some applique blocks from Weze in AL, plus that red border.

I won the lotto blocks, and decided to put them together this way, with the black, and scrappy batik border.

I used lots of 2.5" squares I'd cut from scraps for this one. I sewed many 4-patch
blocks as leader-enders to complete it.
