North Idaho and Lewis Clark QOV

Feb 12, 2012 the North Idaho Quilts of Valor and the Lewis-Clark Quilts of Valor joined to present the final 210 Quilts of Valor to the 145th Idaho National Guard Support Units.  

There were two presentations.  The attached
pictures are of the first group which was the smallest.......then my camera died. Idaho quilters from Kimberly,  McCall, Lewiston, Kamiah, Coeur
D'Alene, and Moscow were joined by quilters from Oklahoma, Colorado, Florida, Washington, Arizona and many more states and individuals.  

Our total awarded quilts were 279.

The young men and women receiving their Quilts each received a "HUG" from us (There were 8 of us dishing out the love).  

I think it is imperative to impart the hug whenever possible.  It is the last physical gift of love we
can impart to each of them.  It is the healing love and genuine knowledge we care and wish them well.

We would like to thank everyone who helped us out.  We could have not reached our goal without your help.  In fact, we received a few more than
we needed for the presentation.  Fourteen quilts have been shipped via the Destination Coordinator to where they are most needed.  Idaho is continuing
our mission.  The need is great and we will continue to do our part to the best of our ability.

  1. Thank you for being the 'hugging representatives' for the rest of us!!

  2. When I am asked to do a presentation, I always reply the "HUG" is non negotiable! It is from each and every one of us. It is OUR pleasure.
