Quilts honor veterans

| August 12, 2013

COSHOCTON – This year the Canal Quilters Annual Show featured a Hall of Honor.

Twenty-six quilts done in patriotic colors were part of the display, which honored veterans. The quilts also will be donated to area veterans in December through a program run by the Elks.

“The enjoyment of making these is knowing that a local veteran is going to get one,” said Karen Caley, chairperson of the veterans quilt committee. “It’s heartwarming. Our veterans have done so much for us and this is our way of giving a little back to them.”

The show, hosted by the Coshocton Canal Quilters, was held Aug. 9-11, at the Presbyterian Church. More than 200 quilts were part of the show, which featured hand-quilted, machine applique, baby, cross stitch, bead work, and many other types of quilts.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
