2008 Soldier Quilts

American Hero Quilts

That is the home page of the group with which I have been working for four years to create quilts for wounded American soldiers.
They are in need of battings and backings to complete the quilt tops people are sending.
Red, White and Blue fabrics, and variations on those colors, are also needed.

Someone asked me what Leader-Ender blocks are. They are blocks I sew as I start a chain of stitching, or end a chain of stitching, on another pattern or top. For instance, if I'm sewing stars together, at the end of the row, I could stitch off onto a scrap of fabric, which many people do. Instead, I stitch a part of another set of blocks, putting together 4-patches or 9-patches or HSTs, or piecing those into full blocks. It takes a while to complete enough but not all that long when you are stitching as many blocks and tops as I do.
