A Great Story: Quilts and Heroes

Jennifer Stevens is a current Scrap Squad member, and she is married to a wrestling coach in Hays, Kansas. Jennifer sent me the link to the story below and I think Quilty Pleasures readers will enjoy it. In a time when we don’t have enough heroes, this story about a wrestling legend making a Quilt of Valor for another kind of hero is pretty cool.

    That is a man who truly knows what HONOR means, and lives it. He’s an inspiration to us all.

    What a remarkable story. This shows that anyone can sew/quilt. This makes me want to make a Valor Quilt soon.
