FAIRFIELD — Members of the North Wind Quilters Guild on Tuesday presented quilts to members of the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery Honor Guard and the cemetery’s Wreath Project.

Quilts were presented at the Fairfield Senior Center.

The quilt given to the Wreath Project was intended to help the group raise money to help purchase wreaths for the annual wreath laying, which takes place each December.

In 2013, 12,500 wreaths were laid at the event. This year, they will need about 14,000 wreaths.
