Quilts of Valor, Guild’s 40th Anniversary

August 17, 2016

As part of the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston’s 40th Anniversary celebration, the guild decided to  donate 40 quilts to Quilts of Valor. Unbelievably, these generous ladies donated 52 quilts! On Tuesday, July 19th, we came together to celebrate the 40 years of the Guild’s existence, and to donate our quilts. It was a very special evening, with 26 quilts going to the QOV Foundation and 26 going to Camp Hope helping servicemen and women suffering from PTSD.

During the evening, one quilt was donated to the brother-in-law of a guild member, Genelle Long. Wayne had served in Vietnam, and it was truly touching seeing him being draped in a quilt made with love.

On Sunday, July 24, another ceremony took place, with the quilts being awarded to Camp Hope. The quilts were beautiful, and I think the men really appreciated the gifts of love and appreciation.

I am very proud of my guild, and so proud to be part of such a project.

Happy quilting ….
