We are also teaming up with other sponsors to participate in Island Batik’s Quilted in Honor program, a fund raising initiative, which helps to support Operation Homefront.
We attended a reception at the Portland Quilt Market unveiling the program, including presentations from personnel that work directly with Operation Homefront to bring support to returning veterans and their families, especially those with hardships.
Eleanor Burns presented a quilt that she designed especially for the program to a returning wounded soldier and his family.
Rob Appell, also designed a quilt especially for the introduction
to the program. Rob is especially known for his applique and art quilt skills with ocean life.
