from Deb S who awarded quilts for us:
I met up with 12 of the veterans from the 'group of 15' from Lake Zurich area library on Monday evening 10/23 to award them their quilts. I had 3 ladies from my quilt guild assist with this - - and they want to help again!!! Yes, I accomplished my mission of getting them 'hooked' about awarding quilts!
I've attached a photo of 11 of the 12 veterans with their quilts (one was the first to receive her quilt and then she left - - she had child responsibilities).
They were all very appreciative of receiving the quilt and the chatting and taking of photographs continued even after the 'event' was concluded. Three vets received quilts that I made, one even saying that I saw the one he was awarded at our quilt show when he attended!

Oh, and...CHANGE OF PLANS!!!!! for those who want to sew in Montgomery November and December. Ladies want to work on cutting batting and feel best done at our Montgomery location. Don't know if we will do both November and December, but we for sure be at one. Will let you know.
