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.

More May reporting.
On Saturday, Chicago was the location for a Returning Warrior Workshop. Thank you, Deb S, and Suzie W for assisting me in awarding 43 Veterans their quilt. As always a very moving experience.
The Veterans bring along a significant other. The Veteran above brought his father, a Vietnam Veteran. He awarded his father with his own QOV.
