Visit with Marianne Fons at International Quilt Market in Houston to kick off the Under Our Wings project which is part of the Quilts of Valor program. Since 2003 over 32,000 quilts have been donated to post deployment combat veterans. The project is a brilliant synergy teaching people to quilt while quilting for a cause. Nine fabric companies have created special fabrics and quilts for the project so you can make a quilt and/or mentor a new quilter. A “coach” brings her own machine and tools and the “rookie” does the sewing. Check your local quilt shop for a workshop in your area.
Then watch part 3 on choosing the correct quilt kit for your projects.
