For over 5 ½ years, Freedom Quilts has made and collected quilts to give to families of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and families of fallen soldiers.  Over 5,600 quilts have been given to families and the number continues to grow.  Requests continue for these quilts but funding is limited so it was decided to create a red, white and blue quilt to be raffled off to assist with funding for this project. For over 5 ½ years Betty Nielsen's home has been the place for designing quilts for these families.  However, if enough funds can be raised, there are plans to have a building from where the quilts can be designed.For information or to see the quilt that is being raffled, visit www.freedomquilts.net. 

 Also, War Paint (pictured above), one of the original quilts designed for this effort, has been donated by Freedom Quilts to The World Trade Center Memorial Museum in New York City.   Everyone’s help is needed to continue comforting families.  If interested, please contact Betty Nielsen at debeniel@ncn.net
