Quilts of Honor

In September our guild, Annie's Star Quilt Guild held a ceremony and presentation thru the Quilts of Honor program. Quilts made and quilted by members of our guild were presented to local veterans (Chico, CA / Butte County area).
Here a few of the photos from that evening in commemoration for Veterans Day...

This was a total surprise to Kaywood and Robbie is one of her closest friends :0)

One of three WWII Vet and Chico resident that survived Pearl Harbor presented with his quilt by Gail. Another was presented the next day at the recipients home.

Gail Belmont (on the left) is an amazing person and a longarm quilter. Yet, she has never made a quilt! Only knows her way around a longarm and does is very well! She quilts many of the quilt tops donated to the Quilts of Honor organization and does a gorgeous job of it! Her work includes the quilt behind her and the first quilt pic I posted. Amazing person! It was an honor to meet her. Here is a link to an article recently written about her and the group and the dedication they showed during the 'Government shutdown'.
It was quite an evening!

**Thank you to all that have served and are serving today**
