American Hero Quilts

Annie, our West Coast member, who sends us quilts for our Veteran quilt project sent me this information from her Quilt Guild. Thought you all would like to see it, too!

American Hero Quilts, a precursor local version of Quilts of Valor, recently marked the 18,000th quilt they had given to injured soldiers in current conflicts during the last 11 years of their existence.  Sue Nebeker, the Vashon Island resident who started and still runs it, invited someone from the Hospital distributing the quilts in Kandahar to speak to the daytime Quilt Guild meeting, which was held at the soon to be closed Island Quilter Quilt Shop.  Thought you might like to see it; the sort of message that makes you not quite so tired of making yet another red, white and blue quilt…  Wish I could have attended the meeting, but they are held during work hours.


  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing it with us.

  2. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed seeing the quilts and listening to the speaker.
