Quilts, created with love, bring comfort to moms

For six years, members of the La Plata Quilters Guild have made quilts to be given to Colorado’s Gold Star mothers – women who have lost a child to war in Iraq or Afghanistan. This year, they created 20 quilts to be presented at the Gold Star Mothers weekend at the end of the month. Jill Borhen, a Gold Star mom, who lost her son, Billy, talked to the quilters about what their gift means at the guild’s August meeting.
