Wounded Warrior Quilts

I e-mailed Theresa about double sized quilts for the Wounded Warrior Base wanting to know specific dimensions. 

I am collecting twenty fat quarters and grouping them into themes for quilts for the soldiers.  If anybody wants to help donate fabric, get together and cut and piece, willing to machine quilt,etc.  So far I have started on fabrics in the following themes – sports, nature, polka dots, cowboy, Orientals, floral, stars, brights, batiks, fun prints, food and "others".  I have a pattern which calls for 20 fat quarters.  It cuts and pieces quickly.

Hopefully I will be headed to Camp Pendleton in Nov. for Thanksgiving.  My brother Dan is due back from Iraq in time for pumpkin pie!  I will take finished quilts with me!

Also, let’s start shipping boxes of goodies now instead of waiting for the first of Dec.  I still have some Ziplocs.  I will bring them to the next meeting.  Let’s fill them and send them.  I will get addresses for soldiers who do not have families sending them care packages.  Money for postage gratefully accepted.  Any other ideas for goodies/supplies/toiletries to send, please let me know.  I will start a master list and update it as needed.

Thanks for all the good you do for all !!!
