Local quilters are honoring veterans this weekend at the “Home of the Brave” quilt show on Barker’s Island in Superior.

The quilts on display tell stories about the military men and women who inspire them. 

Jeanette Betterman, of Superior, made two quilts. 

One honors her grandson’s path in the Marine Corps and says this is the least she could do to say “Thank You.”

“Making these quilts helps us to realize what they really go through and it’s our only way of saying thank you because there’s a lot of love in every stitch in these quilts.  There’s a lot of love and a lot of Thank You’s,” said Betterman. 

A number of the quilts made are being donated to families of the Wisconsin  Army National Guard 950th Engineer Company.

“We make the quilt and we give it away because we are so thankful for our service men and our vets,” said Quilt of Valor Coordinator, Linda Fort.

The show continues Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
