Nov 16, quilt making and three venues for quilt awards

We had a WWII Veteran who happened to be the father of one of my Volunteers. We surprised a female Navy Veteran with a quilt at a breakfast meeting at church. And we had a POW get his quilt along with a couple of special order quilts.

We took Thanksgiving to be with our families and friends. Then on the 30th, we were back to quilt making and one of our quilts was #4,500! Our group has made and presented more quilts than the average state!

So ends our month with a year to date total of 448 quilts given!
