Donna Gamble of Toppenish, seen here with her hand-quilted “Seven Sisters” quilt, is encouraging other quilters to support a quilt-making project for the Wounded Warriors project. Details will be provided to Horizon Quilters Unlimited of Yakima Valley at its club meeting Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 9 a.m., at Immanuel Lutheran Church Hall, 300 S. Euclid Road in Grandview. Special guest speaker will be Louise Bianchi, who is spearheading the Wounded Warrior program in Grandview. Project quilts will be supplied to wounded service personnel recuperating at Fort Lewis’ Madigan Army Hospital in Tacoma. Gamble, who is a 20-year member of the quilting group, usually makes family quilts, but she has also made 230 quilts for wounded U.S. military personnel. “This is a good project,” she said.
