Fons & Porter sponsors another project for Veterans and their families

Fons & Porter
has long been and still is a major supporter of the Quilts of Valor program.
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 (above) especially for the introduction to the program. Rob is especially known for his appliqué and art quilt skills with ocean life.

Happy Quilting!

  1. QOV, great site. Sis made ‘Flight of the Eagle’ quilt for our Navy daughter who has 20yrs, coming home next month. Love the beautiful design; the beige/white fabric has white eagles in flight.
