week of 8/17-8/20 Lots of happenings

Mon 8/17 a quilt was presented to a WWII Vet on his 90th birthday by his friend and caregiver.  My long time friend Walter Davis a WWII navy vet who turned 90 today. I presented him a quilt on behalf of the Quilts of Valor organization for his service. I have to pitch this because this is a great organization to donate to. I am the Veterans Affairs Chairman for the Orange County Chapter and the State of Calif Sons of the American Revolution. I have partnered with So Cal. QOV for over 3 years to honor our Wounded Warriors and veterans. These are a home run gift for these vets and they always are so happy and humbled to receive these beautiful lovingly made quilts. If you are looking for a place to give a little something to honor our heros. Please this is it!! Check them out on facebook at So Cal Quilts of Valor

Thank you!

I made the Day Dreams pattern in beige/brown #3345 and again in blue/purple #3346–they sure look different!
Adam brought his service dog, Rakkastan (SP?) that he got through Pets 4 Vets in Long Beach. He is a recent graduate of USC, so the back of his patriotic quilt incorporated Trojan fabric!
