It might be a week after Veteran’s Day, but it’s never too late to salute and honor the veterans in our lives. You may remember from last year, the crew here at Clothworks working on a few quilt projects constructed from Marsha McCloskey’s Everything Blue collection. Most of us in the office and a few talented bloggers we know, contributed enough quilt blocks during the Everything Blue Block Hop that were transformed into 2 large quilts. The Red, White, & Blue color scheme of these quilts took on a patriotic mood, and it was only appropriate to donate them to a veteran. Since there are a few members of the Clothworks team that have a special veteran in their lives, we couldn’t look any further from them.
Pictured above from left to right is our lovely Susan (who works in Customer Service/ Order Entry at Clothworks), her husband Michael (Vietnam Veteran), and Ted (CEO of Clothworks). We presented 1 of the 2 Quilts of Valor we made to Michael. Michael served as a Medical/Dental Specialist at Camp Kue Army Hospital in Okinawa from 1970-1973. We salute Michael and hope this quilt will serve as a reminder of our appreciation for his service!
Stay tuned soon in a separate post as we salute another special veteran with the other Quilts of Valor Quilt we completed.
