Quilts Of Valor Challenge!

A fellow blogger and quilter, Alycia, has made it her life's mission to give every wounded soldier a quilt! Not a bad mission, if you ask me, but its a tough one! She has done amazing things with The Quilts Of Valor Foundation. She got her Mom's sewing group hooked, she's involved her children's school and she already delivered a van full of quilts in May.

The Chaplin at the Army hospital kindly asked her if she thought she could bring 100 QUILTS next time? Being the big hearted, giving person she is said "Sure!". So, several of us have been on a mission to help her meet that goal. Then, today someone mentioned to her that she should try for 400 QUILTS to cover every soldier in that unit.

That's a lofty goal! There will be another delivery of quilts scheduled for May 2009, but she may try to squeeze a smaller delivery in this Fall.

Let's all try to help Alycia meet (or exceed?) her goal! Take a peek at her blog and let you know your "in"
