Quilters Honoring Veterans

A shout out to all our Veterans!

Some of you may remember this POST when my husband was honored with as an Operation Quilt Recipient. This quilt below is one of over 6,000 that have been gifted since 9/12/2001 to Active Duty Military, Returning Wounded and Honorably Discharged from all engagements and branches. 
I couldn't think of a better day to not only honor our Veterans, but to honor this genuine organization.
All the supplies for the organization's quilts are obtained from donations.
Quilts are lap size, measuring 36"x 47" and have a cozy flannel backing. I love how a heart label is strategically placed in a non-traditional location so it will be close to their heart to bring comfort.  
Perhaps there is a branch in your area? 
No matter what today, thank you to all our Veterans. May our quilty love comfort  you.

  4. SO it took some other woman to make your hubby a quilt, eh? :) Seriously, I clicked on the link and that is a wonderful and sweet story.
    My son's a Vet and his son Brent is named after his friend and SGT. who did not return from Iraq with them.
