happy vet and quilter

A happy American Legion Post 69 veteran and the quilter from Patterns of Grace. The quilter made and gifted the quilt to the vet in appreciation for the community’s generosity and spirit.

A friendship between Payson resident Kim Chittick and Connie Little, a member of the Valley based Patterns of Grace quilters, resulted in a gift of 19 quilts to veterans from Payson’s American Legion Post 69 on March 4.

“Patterns of Grace has been coming to Payson for an annual retreat for several years,” said Chittick. “Leading up to the retreat this year, the ladies decided that they would like to make and present Americana/red, white and blue quilts to local veterans. My friend, Connie called to ask if I had any suggestions or recommendations for the best way to make this happen.”
