Honoring Veterans in our Lives
As I was reflecting on Veterans Day, I realized that many of us have relationships with Veterans that we would like to honor. Give one of those a call today and let them know you appreciate them. I personally plan to call my Uncle who served in the Korean war.
Honor them with a Quilt
There are a number of awesome free patterns on the internet that can be used for a quilt to honor a veteran. Obviously anything with a star theme works well. Also any quilts in patriotic colors. Let me share a couple of them.
Star Struck by Terri Karash. The design is by Quiltville and is offered as a free pattern on Quiltville's website.
Pinwheel Plus offered on the Quilts of Valor Foundation website. If you are not familiar with Quilts of Valor, check out their mission and how to participate.
