American Hero Quilts

A few days before Christmas, I sent a box of 15 kids quilts and 1 afghan that I’d been collecting for a few months to Sue Nebecker at the American Hero Quilts project at Madigan Army Medical Hospital in Vashon, Washington.

Yesterday, I received this note in the mail from Sue:

"Dear Jan and Santa Rosa Quilt Guild,
Thank you so much for the childrens quilts you sent to the American Hero Quilt Project.  We had run out.
Unfortunately, we had not run out of children who had lost their mom or dad in conflict.
Your hard work is greatly appreciated.
Sue Nebecker"

I just wanted to thank everyone who donated these quilts for the kids.  It breaks my heart that we need them, but we do, and so we will make them.
