Fisher House Donation Quilt

This is the Wacky Packs current donation quilt. Blocks were made by the pack earlier this year on a retreat. Random Red, white, and blue blocks were made and put together by all members. The quilt will be quilted soon and donated to Fisher House, which provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers.

This quilt spurred a desire to make Red, White, and Blue quilts for ourselves. We are swapping blocks in February and then each Wacky will make her own quilt for her retreat bed. See some of the members blocks below. These overachievers are finished way before the deadline. We will use for the center a rendition of ourselves using a book by Amy Bradley called Quilters Yearbook.

Using the components of many different drawings of quilters, you make a likeness of yourself. It
will be fun to see the Caricatures we create of ourselves.
