Stork's Nest quilts and Quilts Of Valor

I spent the whole day with the Yongsan Quilter's today. There are some super neat women/quilter's here. Monday's are spent making quilts for the Stork's Nest and for making Quilts Of Valor...both worthy causes!!! Also on Monday it's show and tell of the projects we have been working on at home. This awesome quilt was made by the lady on the left, a Colonol in the United States Army...where does she find the time? So about the Stork's Nest quilts. Here at Yongsan there is a HUGE Labor and Delivery unit at the hospital. The Yongsan quilters have a goal of making 20 baby quilts a month to give to new mother's...20 is so not enough though...there were 90...yes 90 scheduled deliveries in the month of April, not to mention the girls who choose to go off-post. This base is a baby making machine! I am into making baby quilts.


There are a few girls qualified to make the patriotic Quilts Of Valor. They are so warm and beautiful...you should see them. There is a reverence that goes along with the making of those. Here is a quilt top Kim was sewing on today.




This Quilt Of Valor is finished.











There are tags/labels that get sewn to the back of all quilts sewn by the Yongsan Quilters. I love working with these fellow military wives.
