Well it is official…I attended my first quilt show ever! A person has to start somewhere, right? I went to the Covered Bridge Quilt Show in Winterset during the Covered Bridge Festival and it was terrific.
The highlight of my quilt show experience was meeting Rod Beem. Rod is a Vietnam Veteran and a Purple Heart recipient. I talked with Rod and he told me about when he received his Quilt of Valor. I could hear the pride in his voice and saw the joy on his face as he talked about his quilt.
What a great memory.
I’m looking forward to my next quilt show and personally working with Quilts of Valor. Until next time…
