I Just returned from East Hampton High School, Long Island NY. We spent 10 hours with about 100 students, staff and parents making quilts for our military men and woman who have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. This is the fifth time doing this project and each one has been successful. We completed about 30 tops with this trip and bound 7 from our April visit. We gave a completed quilt to Sergeant Eloy I. Castano, United Stated Army. Sergeant Castano has been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. A special thank you to Dr. Edholm for introducing this worth while program to her students. Another big thank you to AccuQuilt for donating an AccuQuilt cutter so we didn't have to hand cut all this fabric.
