When I went to MQX, I dropped off a stack of quilts to the Quilts of Valor booth and ran off to work. The next day (or the day after that?) someone from Quilts of Valor let me know that this specific quilt was given away. Patrick, a young serviceman, is being shipped home for surgery and the Governor of Rhode Island presented this quilt to his mother!
I actually got to meet mom (Debbi). We hugged and she told me about Patrick and we all ended up crying like fools.
Want to share in this honor? Check out Quilts of Valor and see how you can help.
