February 17, 2015: General Meeting

Don Beld "American Hero Quilts"

LECTURE: Dons' lecture is based on his book named "American Hero Quilts." There are 112 old patterns after famous Americans and he tells stories related to these people. His quilts are all authentic quilts from the 1800's, including Civil War quilts up to and including the present day War Heros.

BIOGRAPHY: Our speaker for the month of February is Mr. Don Beld from Southern California. He is best known as one of the nation's leading experts on U.S. Sanitary Commision soldiers' quilts. These quilts, made during the Civil War for use in military hospitals, represent an important link between yesterday's community service quilting and today's.

Don is the Founder of the Home of the Brave Quilt Project, an international movement that is dedicated to giving quilts to families of fallen warriors from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraq Freedom. He also has fourteen quilts completed that will be part of the permanent collection of the New England Quilt Museum that are part of the National Iraq/Afghanistan Memorial.

Don has been the featured artist at Road to California, he has two first place ribbons at the Glendale Guild Quilt Show and Honorable Mention at the National Quilters Association Quilt Show in Columbus, Ohio. His second book, American Heroes Quilts: Past and Present, is scheduled for release in 2015.
