Quilt of Valor

Once again I have the prividlege of quilting one of Al Lind's quilt tops.  For those of you that don't know about Al, I have an older post that shares a brief synopsis of his story here.

Top made by Al Lind, WWII Veteran, POW, Purple heart recipient.

This is the 17th top of Al's that I have quilted.  He was a prolific piecer: having pieced over 500 quilts.  When he passed away in 2010 at age 92, he left a legacy of over 80 tops yet to be quilted.
This quilt will be sent to Inland Northwest Quilts of Valor group for presentation in Feb.  They are awarding quilts to a Post Falls, ID Unit recently returned from Iraq.
Thank You Al.

What a wonderful and loving man. It would have been fun to sit and visit with him. His quilts reflect the love he had for this country and its soldiers.

Wow Ann, this is a great story, and for me, it really highlights what I believe is the spirit of quilt making. Great to read this post, and it is a wonderful gesture you are doing.

Wow. Just wow. As a military wife and an Idahoan, I'd love to help. Can you hook me up with other quilts to finish?
