Veteran's Quilts 2016

After our October Bee Meeting, I brought home some of the quilts that we had ready for delivery to the Veterans Hospital in Durham.  I bundled them up and tied them with leftover bindings.  
A few more were brought by members who were still working on their quilts.  There are about 40 quilts and 20 pillowcases pictured here.  

Pat brought more quilts when she came to my house on delivery day.  She also brought 5 bags of magazines (mostly back issues of Our State).  We had a car full when we loaded them all in my car.

It was a beautiful morning and we were so happy to deliver all these quilts and pillowcases made by our quilting friends: Members of the Undercover Bee, Pine Tree Quilters and 3 quilts were donated by a lady Pat met in a quilt shop.  
In all we gave 85 quilts  and 20 pillowcases to the Hospice Unit of the Durham VA Hospital this year.  Kudos to all the generous and caring quilters.
