2018 Quilt Raffle - This year’s quilt is in the traditional red/white/blue theme. The pattern is called Medallion Log Cabin. The center medallion is done in dark blue embroidery thread using the cross stitch. This was done by hand, no machine work here. It is 15 1/2 inches square in the shape of a star. The blue fabric has an overall pattern of little white stars and the red used in the logs is a dark red tone on tone. The center squares are solid red. The whole quilt is 99 1/2 inches long and 81 3/4 inches wide. Quilted By: Nancy Deimerly

Each year the quilt raffle has become a staple of the National Reunion to benefit the Layette Program with the drawing of the winning ticket held during the Flames of Remembrance Banquet. 

The Mountain Post Layette program has been reorganized under the (ACS) Army Community Service and will continue to work with the Senior Advisors and Evans Army Community Hospital to welcome new babies to Fort Carson.  Business is booming at Evans, as we have about 150+ babies being born every month.  Rolling the layette program under ACS allows us to greet new parents with the 4ID layette set and information about parenting resources available, says Kristen Kea, representative for the Warrior Family Community Partnership.
