‘Sewing Machines’ Options

The Camo Quilt Project is made up of volunteers that create thousands of quilts destined for military personnel stationed in the Middle East. The quilts are made from the same camouflage material as the soldiers’ uniforms. Lightweight and breathable, they are valued for their many uses—slept on and under, they serve as protection from the harsh elements.
