Not all that serve in our armed forces are human. There are many specially trained dogs that serve along side of our soldiers. Because of their dangerous situations, some have been wounded or even killed in the line of duty. The dogs and their handlers start out as a team, but then become family members. Thank you ALL for your service.

Mountains of Stars

This is a challenge quilt for the Bee Sew Brave bee. I chose this pattern, Starlight Mountains by Andrea Smith of Happy Cloud Creations because I feel it goes well with the challenge fabric. Following the quilt show, it will be donated to a veteran.

This quilt was actually a challenge quilt from 2019 for the Bee Sew Brave Bee. I’m just a little late in completing it. All of the dogs in the pattern are specially cut and placed in the blocks. Pay close attention to the quilting. Look for the bones.

The LeMoyne Star was the 2020 Be Sew Brave challenge. This quilt has already been given to a very deserving veteran. Daniel Dennison served in the Air Force from 1964-1968 as a helicopter chief. After returning home, Dan worked as a mason contractor in CO and surrounding states building amazing structures. Dan also served his community of Platteville as a volunteer firefighter for 15 years, followed by a Public Works Official for the town of La Salle for 5 years and 13 years in Mead. Thank you Dan, for your service to your community, town and country.

This quilt was made with a challenge fabric. Those that wanted to make a quilt for BEE SEW BRAVE Military Outreach received a yard of fabric to use in their quilt. I made mine to give to the Tiny House Project. It will go to a Veteran that will live in the Tiny House Project

Tribute To A Veteran

Quilted By   Von Yetzer

 

This quilt is part of Bee Sew Brave’s Military Honor Quilt Challenge. Each Bee member used the same fabric as part of a quilt that they created. This is my entry. The quilts will be donated to Veterans Community Project, to be used as housewarming gifts for veterans moving into their new Tiny House Village.

An Overdue Thank You!!

My gift to my husband for his service in Vietnam. So many other returning Vietnam Veterans received little or no recognition for their service. This was the first quilt I made for the Bee Sew Brave group!!
