There are 22 patriotic house quilts in the project, however only 20 pictured here, because 2 have already been delivered. All quilts are 12W x 16H.   Veteran's First is a non-profit group home facility for veterans in Garden Grove, CA.  Furnishing Hope is redecorating all of the rooms and a patriotic house quilt will be hung on the wall by each bed in this facility. 
Thank you to all of the quilt artists who donated their time and talents to make this possible!


  1. great job ladies...way to go Jamie!

  2. Ohmigosh! What a wonderful project! And thanks so much for posting such nice big images that I can click on to embiggen, and then click the little plus sign to embiggen even more! What fun to see all these little pieces of art up close. They all make me HAPPY!

  3. These are delightful and you are prolific! Good feelings abound.

  4. What a colorful bunch of quilts! The vets will love them.

  5. This is absolutely wonderful! I hope the vets realize all the love that went into these quilts. Thank you so much for your kindness.

  6. Thanks to all of you for this effort. Sometimes, when the media forgets to focus on our vets, we do to. This personal "touch" may be just the thing one of them needs to help begin the journey back to their "home".
