A gift from the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild

We received an email last week from the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild offering one of their "blue heart" quilts for the family of Officer Brackeen, a Shelby police officer, who was killed this past week. We were so moved by the compassion and generosity of the Fort Worth Guild.

Please read:

"We heard about the horrible shooting of Officer Brackeen in Shelby and would like to extend one of our blue heart quilts to the officer's family.  We (Dallas and Fort Worth MQG's) have had so much support for our fallen and injured officers that we would like to return the kindness.  Many Carolina quilters sent in blocks to help with our #quiltsforpeace initiative.

Through the initiative, not only have we given quilts to our officers and family members, we have sent quilts to Baton Rouge MQG and San Diego MQG for their fallen and injured officers.  On the map you look to be the local MQG for Shelby. If this is correct, we are asking if you would accept one of our #quiltsforpeace and pass it along to the Shelby Police Department so they can give it to the Brackeen family."

Thank you, Fort Worth quilters. We will be honored to deliver this very special gift to the Brackeen family.
