Quilt Trail Project - El Dorado County Veterans Memorial Building

Veterans Memorial Building 130 Placerville Drive, Placerville “Stars & Stripes’ was a raffle quilt won by a local quilter who was excited to win, however, she didn’t have a place to hand the 4- foot square barn quilt. Her family has a patriotic history, dating back to the civil and Revolutionary wars, so she asked the Quilt Trail Project to find a service veteran to donate it to. In a moment of inspiration, Linda George, founding member of the project and also a local, thought to approach the veterans associations to see if they would like to place it on their building. A presentation was made on January 7, 2016 to a full audience of several veteran’s organizations and they decided to unanimously accept the kind gesture. It’s also very special because many charitable groups use the building for free including the ‘Sew For Vets’ www.sew4vwta.org and ‘Quilts of Valor’www.qovf.org
