Group donates quilts

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A group of quilters donated gifts Wednesday to the children of Mississippi soldiers.

The Pine Belt Quilters presented 130 quilts to children of troops in the 155th Brigade Combat Team currently training at Camp Shelby for a deployment to Iraq.

Each quilt was sewn by a member of the organization, and each had a tag with the group's Web site.

The Pine Belt Quilters meet the first Tuesday of each month to work on childrens' quilts.
