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

Sew In Show & Tell
We had an awesome show and tell yesterday. These are the 3 quilts made for the New Years Day Sit and Sew Challenge. After the 3rd one is complete we will be mailing them to Afghanistan.
The rest, except for the red and white quilt, were some of the completed quilts that came in. The red and white quilt is one made up by Sharon K for an idea for kits we will be making up.
