I wanted to also put out a thank you to Audrey McComber of Two Chicks and a Rooster and her quilt ladies for their donation of four quilts for the Gold Star Families. Always a welcome surprise each year when you guys give us a quilt. This year you outdid yourself. Thank you all!
Hi All, I know I have been remiss about posting on the blog. I couldn't get in for a while. I do have some new pictures of the quilts we made for the April gathering of the WI Families of the Fallen organized by BTRO - Being There - Reaching Out. I do hope you will find some time to come and join us on one of our quilt nights. We had a great night last Wednesday. The project has morphed into making quilts for our WI wounded also. We are currently meeting the fourth Wednesday of each month through the summer. 6 pm - 8 pm We are still meeting at the Legion Post in the Mutual Mall building in West Bend. It's on Main Street next to the police station. Come check us out.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who have helped in getting this batch of quilts ready for the April 2012 Gold Star Family Gathering. We will be presenting them on April 14. Since the weather is getting nice, we will return to meeting the fourth Wednesday of each month. We are also expanding our project to include making quilts for the wounded soldiers at the VA. Any help you can offer is always greatly appreciated. I recently was given a large batch of blocks that will be perfect for these quilts. The wounded quilts do not have to be patriotic like we make the Gold Star quilts. I'm looking forward to more sewing with you all. See you in April!
