Today, the KOA Quilters presented a quilt to the Lafayette VA Clinic in tribute to the Veterans of Acadiana.

Countless hours have been spent by the KOA Quilters group to craft the beautiful VA Heritage/Service Appreciation Quilt. The quilt features patriotic elements including the American Flag, the bald eagle as well as emblems of each military branch. The machine quilting design was quilted by KOA Quilter and Navy Veteran Alice Bott, who is now deceased.

A display case for the quilt was designed and built by Eddie Howk. Members of the group say this was truly a labor of love by members of the Acadiana community in recognition of all Veterans.

We’ll have more tonight on KATC TV3.
