Happy Veteran's Day

11-11-11 stands for today Friday November 11, 2011.  What a "cool" date that is....it just makes you want to buy 11 fat quarters, 11 spools of thread and 11 patterns!!!!

11-11-11 also signifies an important day in national history - Veteran's Day.  It is a day that we remember and recognize those that have served our country and promoted and protected our freedom.

I think it is also worthy to recognize the efforts that Jean and many of the quilter's have taken in terms of national service.  Quilts of Valor is a program that Jean participates in and has worked tirelessly to put handmade quilts in the hands of veterans and soldiers touched by war.   Through donations by individual quilters and Jean and her shop, numerous pillowcases and quilts have been donated to the national program.   Check out the Quilts of Valor Website at http://www.qovf.org.
