Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Ashley Edstrom!!!

Ashley Edstrom (#7053) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Community Service Merit Badge!

“As a quilter, I researched organizations where I can use my quilting skills. There are many (local and national), including Project Linus, Quilted Comforts, and the one I ultimately chose, Quilts of Valor. The quilts made by QOV are donated to veterans upon request of their family in honor of their service. I have attended “sew days” where we work on blocks to create one quilt, or we may work on individual quilts.

I have finished my latest project for QOV, with approx. 40 hours of time into this quilt. This quilt will be presented to a Vietnam veteran in September!”

    What a beautiful quilt! I have a friend who was recently presented with one of these Quilts of Valor. I think it is a wonderful treasure provided for our veterans and now, seeing it a bit from the other side, I know that it means so much more to the recipients than we can ever know. I can only hope that one day my quilting skills will be good enough to give me the courage to make such an important gift.
