Freedom Quilts is another amazing quilting place to visit. Freedom Quilts is a nonprofit organization that was created to craft personalized quilts for family members who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. You can call ahead to schedule an appointment to see these gorgeous, personalized quilts being made. Or, if you’re moved by these efforts, you can volunteer and lend a hand to help craft part of a quilt yourself.
