So, that is why I put out a call to our machine quilters. I have about a dozen tops needing quilting and more will be coming in as they usually do, at our next sew in. I'm thinking maybe we can go to this picnic and present a few (if that's ok with the Commanding officers--haven't heard yet). He tells me they work out of Ft Sheridan --another reason I thought we should at least try---that's in our own backyard!
See, that's what goes on in the background of our sew-ins. Next Tuesday we are presenting 13 quilts to veterans who suffer from PTSD. AGAIN, this is because one person received a QOV and wants to share with his fellow veterans. I KNOW we can't do it all, but just letting you know how the need is yet out there.
