Quilt delivery to the Palo Alto VA Hospital last year

The time is getting closer!  Our goal is to produce 65 wheelchair or lap quilts for the VA Hospital nursing home in Detroit, to be delivered the Friday of NN14...  Are you in?

The quilts need not be complex -- just heartfelt.  Cotton fabric, polyester batting, and your love...  Wheelchair quilts should be about 36" x 60" -- lap quilts can be 50" x 60" or whatever size you feel like.  If you have an unfinished top you would like to complete and donate, that would be great!

Here is the list of pledged quilts -- please let me know if you would like to be added!

Sara R: 2 quilts
winglion: 2 quilts
Beadlady: 3 quilts
Pam from Calif: 3 quilts
Winifred3: 2 quilts

RUNNING TOTAL: 42 quilts, only 23 to go!

If you can do a quilt top but need help quilting it, please let me know.  There may be some help for you.

If you are ready to ship VA hospital quilts, let me know that, too.  Winifred3 and her husband will be collecting the quilts and driving them to Detroit.  Kos mail her for the address -- or me.  

Please share pictures of your ongoing projects, VA Hospital Support Project related or otherwise!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
