Bonnie Hammond of Copperas Cove works on sewing together a quilt square that will be used in a quilt to be given to a veteran or service member who has been touched by war. Saturday was Sewing Day for Quilts of Valor, a national foundation that provides the quilts made by local volunteers.

Around a dozen volunteers gave of their time Saturday in Killeen to ultimately give to veterans or service members. The volunteers of the Quilters With a Heart group of Quilts of Valor created quilt squares that would be constructed into full quilts for veterans.

Laura Winckel, the group leader, said Saturday the act of creating a quilt is rewarding.
