Red, White and Blue

For several years Texas' Nacogdoches Quilters Guild has its July meeting with an all out  Red, White and Blue patriotic program.  This year, members were challenged to make and bring many Quilts of Valor 8 1/2" Anniversary blocks as well as the standard 12 1/2" blocks.  The entire room was decorated with a total of 397 QOV blocks, a completed Lone Star Quilt and a quilt top.  Our QOV chair, Jo Ann Hebert led us in games with a patriotic theme and prizes were awarded.

The 12 1/2" blocks will be sent to the Chatty Quilters in Malakoff, TX (Nancy Kemp, QOV chair). They assemble the blocks, quilt them and ready them for shipping.  One hundred ninety-four 8 1/2" Anniversary blocks were mailed to Karen Demaree.

The Nacogdoches Quilters Guild is proud to be an active supporter of this very worthy endeavor and we will continue as long as the military needs us.
