QUILTS OF VALOR at FIRST FRIDAY SEW-IN
Carol and Eldora brought two quilt tops, pieced by the Quilts of Valor Sewing Group at La Vida Llena, to our December First Friday Sew-In. The group meets regularly in the fiber arts room to create quilts for presentation to Service men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Shortly after this picture was taken, the quilt tops were taken to Taos, where Ron Olson has dedicated himself to quilting quilts for this cause - 1224 quilts, and counting. (If you donated patriotic fabrics to the shop for our charity quilts, you might see some of them in this picture.) Other sewing groups at La Vida Llena make clothing protectors LVL residents, and pillow cases for the UNMH Pediatratics ICU.
