Today was a pretty emotional day.
Ninety quilts were delivered to vets at the VA Hospital here in Augusta. These were vets in long term care. Most seemed to be from the Korea/Vietnam ere through there were a few WWII vets hanging on and unfortunately a few from more recent conflicts.
The guild put together these quilts in 4-1/2 months. That is a lot of fast stitching!
RJ from a local machine and vacuum shop quilted this top that I had made with other quilters. It was his first time quilting so I think it was extra special for him to present the quilt!
There were many watery-eye moments. Regulations did not allow for photos to be taken on the care floors...just take my word that there were lots of smiles!
