We are a busy bunch of quilters that strive to provide quilts as our small and humble way of saying "thanks" to our returning troops. Rita Pennington (firstname.lastname@example.org) is our "Drill Sergeant" and she keeps the (quilting) troops moving and motivated. We have 7 monthly sew-ins: St. Charles, Elgin, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Crest Hill, Geneva and Montgomery. See side bar for more info.

Thank a Veteran each and every day

A couple more pics
Here are a couple more quilt tops from yesterday. I have been collecting donated 16-patch (2 1/2" squares). We then offset them with usually a snowball block, but forgot the 1/2 square triangles, so, we went with it. The 2nd is patriotic churn dash blocks. Hope to get more kits made of this one.
