Congratulations Joan Ballew for her Judge's Choice Award at the Edmond Quilt Show. It was her quilted portrait of her Marine son Logan who received quilts for wounded soldiers when he almost died in Iraq.
Joan's 22" Portrait Quilt is one of 300 of our "Thanking Our Troops--God Bless America Touring Quilts" that are crisscrossing America with all profits from the books and $100 exhibit rental fees going to nonprofits who make quilts for wounded soldiers and families of the fallen.
We've sent thousands of dollars to Home of the Brave, The Hugs Project, etc. to Thank Our Troops in this worthwhile project. Hope you'll enter your 22" quilt to tour and receive a free book and chance at $2500 in prizes & ribbons. See photos, entry & rental forms on http://www.heavenlypatchwork.com/ Reserve this exhibit for your next show.
