The Patriot Dames group led by Kathy Yano were busy over Memorial Day weekend at Quilted Treasures. Kathy, Linda, Jan, Sandy, Char, Betty, Caryn and Phyllis joined forces to create two beautiful quilts for soldiers. The cutting, piecing, pressing and pinning were done out of love and respect for those who serve. By the end of the weekend, they had completed two beautiful quilts with pillowcases to match.
The fabric was donated by Quilted Treasures and designed by Minnick and Simpson for Moda. I chose this fabric collection because proceeds from fabric sales will be donated by Moda to the Semper Fi Fund. The Semper Fi fund supports wounded marines and their families as they heal and adjust to life after combat injury. The monies go directly to the marines and their families. See the quote taken from the Semper Fi site. "Since establishing this fund in 2004, we’ve issued more than 30,000 grants totaling more than $49.5 million to thousands of our heroes and their families." You can learn more about the fund and read soldier stories here Semper Fi Fund Such a worthy cause! If you would like to purchase a kit for this quilt, please call Quilted Treasures at 763-428-1952.
A huge thanks to all of the Patriot Dames, I am proud of your accomplishments. Thanks for the organizing Kathy, and Thanks for the picture Char!
