501st Legion Charity Quilt Project

Bonnie Burton | July 24, 2008

For the past year devouted Star Wars fan and craftster Terri Fontana-Hodges has been collecting patches from Garrisons, Detachments and Squads of the 501st Legion from all over the world. The purpose, to create a unique quilt to help raise money for the Make A Wish foundation.

The quilt features 91 different patches from all over the globe,
including some of the rarest patches created. A few that should be
pointed out:

The Rose Bowl Parade patch
The Celebration IV patch
The Japanese garrison
The Israeli Garrison
Saudi Arabia Garrison
Holmes Trooper patch
The Patch Girl patch
(made in limited quantities by the Golden Gate Garrison for raising funds and patches for the project)
as well as a number of special events and Memorial patches.

These patches are not offered to the general public and many are hard or near impossible to get by even members of the Legion.

The Quilt will be on display at the 501st legion booth during San Diego Comic-Con July 24-27 and the auction ends on the evening of July 26. ALL proceeds go to The Make A Wish Foundation.
