American Heros at Aunt Mary's

Aunt Mary's will be hosting The "American Heros'  group in our classroom this Saturday.  I love to have these fantastic people come play at the shop for a day.  They are doing such a great service for our troops.  Their mission is to make a beautiful quilt for each wounded soldier coming back from the war zone.  It's such a great feeling having them come work on the quilts here.  The quilts that they have made over the years have really made a difference in these solders lives.  Some of the letters that they have received make your heart just swell with pride and emotion. It make me so happy to be able to help. They would also absolutely love any help that you can provide.  Come spend a few hours making blocks, cutting blocks out, or maybe put a binding on.  You don't have to commit to a whole quilt.  They also will take donations of patriotic fabric.  Maybe you are a machine quilter and would like to help.  Come get a quilt and quilt it.  This group usually meets at the senior center in Stanwood most months.  They are scheduled to be here at Aunt Mary's this Saturday July 21st 10:30 - 3:00 and in September on Saturday the 15th.  Oh, and the picture here is one of my wonderful customers that came to my Saturday Sampler sessions all last year and made this quilt, and is donating it to the  American Heros..  I LOVE this quilt and what a great lady!

Thanks Carrol for posting my quilt. I had great fun making these blocks and learning a lot of new techniques with your Saturday Sampler class. I am also a volunteer longarm quilter and love working on these quilts for our wounded heros.
