Back in January we got a flyer in the shop asking for donations for bed quilts for a new Veteran's Community Hospital that they were building in Payson, a town about 7 miles from Spanish Fork. I couldn't wait to jump on the band wagon and get started on one. They were asking for 108. Our donations would bloom from one to three. When I told Stuart I would be donating one in honor of my dad, he suggested we do the same in honor of his Grandpa Bernell Hansen and Uncle Garth Hansen. The quilts needed to be done in time for the Memorial Day opening. Our daughter Kira and husband John donated the materials for the first one pictured. She used a Patriotic line put out by Riley Blake. Kira did a great job on it. Coming from a very patriotic family she was very pleased to participate in such a great project.
Here I am pictured with all three quilts at the Corn Wagon where they were picking up the donated quilts. In total they collected over 150 and lots of lap quilts. They were so pleased with the willingness of the help of so many generous people and youth groups to help make this all possible.
Thank you veteran's for all that you have done and all of those brave soliders still serving our country for our freedom. It's the least we could do.
