FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A number of San Juan County veterans have been recognized by a local quilting group.

The Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/2diD8vf ) that the San Juan Quilters Guild on Saturday presented veterans with 39 handmade quilts to thank them for their service.

The quilts, dubbed “quilts of valor” by the group, were presented during the guild’s two-day quilt show at the Farmington Civic Center.

Quilting coordinator Becki Dunham says the quilts were part of the group’s community service projects. Other community service projects included quilts that were donated to nursing homes, police department and other organizations in San Juan County.
