Some people come into our lives and quickly go,
Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts
And we are never the same.
Flavia Angel quilts are crafted by members of the Braided River Quilt Guild for families that have a experienced a loss.
Home of the Brave Quilts
Throughout its history, the United States has remembered its military heroes in may ways, with plaques, parades, statues and memorials. The Home of the Brave Quilt Project was started to continue that proud tradition in a less than traditional way. This is a nationwide movement dedicated to honoring our fallen heroes of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by making and presenting homemade quilts to their families. The quilts honor and show our gratitude for their soldier's service and provide a measure of comfort to their families.
We've taken our inspiration from quilts made during the Civil War. The Braided River Quilt Guild has presented over 20 quilts to the families in Nebraska and western Iowa.
We met our goal of making 1,000 stockings to send over to troops in harm's way.
