Dubuque library displays Quilts of Valor

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Some in Dubuque spent Sunday afternoon coloring on some fabric. It's part of a Quilts of Valor event at the Carnegie Stout Public Library in Dubuque.

People gathered to create designs on fabric squares which will be sewn together to create a quilt for area veterans.

Cyndy Billmeyer is the region coordinator for the Quilts of Valor Foundation.

"I always say that it's not only to honor and thank (the veterans). It's also to comfort them when needed and I think that there are times when everyone needs a little comfort," said Billmeyer.

On October 9, 11 area veterans will receive a Quilt of Valor at the Carnegie Stout Public Library at an event that begins at 2 pm.
