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.

Memorial Weekend doings
Saturday we presented quilts to WW II,
Korean and Vietnam Veterans at a 5K fundraiser by Operation Welcome You Home organization in Plainfield. Here are a few pictures.
If you are going to be at the Memorial Day Parade in Aurora today, join me at the reviewing stand as the Grand Marshall receives his QOV. Be there around 10:30 AM.
