Quilts of Valor

Resounding cheers go out to those who are making and donating beautiful quilts to the Quilts of Valor program.  The Piney Hills Quilt Guild members enjoyed visiting with some of the ladies in the Ruston, Louisiana, area who are dedicated to the Quilts of Valor project.  Each year the Senior Circle quilters for America's Heroes makes quilts to honor local veterans.  Their 2012 goal was to make twelve quilts for World War II veterans.

Here is just a sampling of some of the quilts that were show-cased at the Piney Hills Quilt Guild meeting Thursday morning prior to their presentation to twelve World War II veterans. 



 









Thank you Julie, Karen, Donna, Susie and Tammy (not pictured) for sharing your beautiful work to honor our nation's best.  

The Piney Hills Quilt Guild meets the second Thursday  each month,  9:30 a.m. at Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 North Trenton St. (Hwy. 167 N).
