Solder of Valor Quilt

I got the idea for the "Solder of Valor Quilt" from my local quilters guild: Cape Cod Quilters Guild, her on Cape Cod. A member mentioned during one of our meetings asked if anyone was interested in completing this quilt front she was holding up with a very patriotic theme for the Solder of Valor Program. I eagerly raised my hand and said I would love to complete this as I have family members and friends servicing currently in the Armed Forces, and enjoy helping out with any organization dealing with our servicemen and women.  The idea behind this program is to make quilts for injured solders who are in the hospital and are recovering from injuries received in combat. I feel it is a small piece to contribute to make the recovery from injuries for solders go a bit more easily...

Our servicemen and women need as much support as we can give them. They serve our country, give up time from being with their family members, and also there are so many that have given the ultimate sacrifice. I am particularly close to a situation where we lost two local solders, one a Marine and one an Army solder. They didn't get the chance to recover, because they gave the biggest sacrifice one could give... I currently have three that I have contributed, and I hope you enjoy the picture of this quilt located below, and hope to make many more.  Please feel free to leave comments or question I look forward to hearing from you.
