There was a wonderful surprise on last night's NBC Nightly News. A report about the Quilts of Valor, and the group from Georgia that made the quilt draped over the wounded officer, thought to be unconscious, who valiantly saluted when receiving his Purple Heart recently. It was the salute seen round the world. And I thought, "Quilts and quiltmakers in the news? Yes please!!"
