Quilt that honors

I have seen some lovely quilts this year, honoring the service of US Military men and women. On this day in America, we honor our Veterans. Many have been honored with Quilts of Valor, a program that started here in Delaware, making quilts to give to families of fallen service men and women.

Three of the quilts below were seen at quilt shows; one is my own.

There are many ways to honor the service to our country, and this is my way. Thank you from the heart of America.

In honor of a US Air Force husband – this quilt was made by DeAnna McMurry.

I really liked this quilt; telling the story of so many family members. Below is the sign associated with the quilt from the show.

And lastly – this is my effort to honor a fallen US Air Force airman. I made this last year for his little boy as a tribute to his daddy:

Not show quilt, but one I made to honor a fallen service man.
