The Just A Stitch Quilt Guild has been seeing a lot of red, white and blue fabric go through their sewing machines this fall. The club constructed a dozen Americana theme quilts for their project, Freedom Quilts.
The quilts have been and continue to be donated to local World War II veterans residing in the county.
It didn’t take the determined group of seamstresses long to make the dozen quilts remembering those who served to keep them and their families living in a free country.
There is a program club members were aware of, Quilts of Valor Foundation. It’s goal is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
The Just A Stitch Quilt Guild made and gives quilts with a similar goal.
They want the recipients to use the quilts they are given as either lap robes or on their beds knowing that their time serving in the military is remembered.
Donna Reppert, president of the quilt guild, and Connie Nebuda, treasurer, were both aware of the Quilts of Valor.
