    I love the quilts. Irish, I never thought of sending it to the quilts of Valor program. I have a couple of orphan quilts here that I was looking for a home for. Something eventually pops up. I coule take them down to the local Veterans hospital here. Good idea. My quilt guild is doing a mystery for our officers challenge this year. I chose fabric for a quilt of Valor for it . I an 2 months behind on it but will catch up quickly.

    I finally got to finish this train ride. I still need to put the final border on but this is as far as it is now. My quilt inspector gives it a seal of approval. But, he wants me to give it to him The house is a little dark at the moment but the stars are a red with grey, black and white dots. Enjoy

    Nice finish. It's a good feeling to be caught up before Judy starts another one.Is the inspector a Minpin. My DGD has one.

    So I spent 6 weeks this summer with my sweet MotherInLaw after my FatherInLaw passed. While I was with her I showed her all the tops I had finished and also finished the four above while I was at her house. Each time I finished one I showed her. When I laid out the purple/flowers she just sighed and said, "Oh I want to be buried with that one." I was shocked and of course said it was hers!! OR... I'd make her a special quilt I had planned from the cut off flying geese ears. I came home from Idaho the middle of August and quickly finished the geese parts on my last 8 quilts. Then made two more blocks so I'd have 25 for a 5x5 setting. I sashed her quilt in the fabrics of the one she wanted to be buried with. The tags on her quilt and the grandchildren quilts will now say "Grandma will forever have a piece of your quilt and you will always have a piece of hers." I will mail it to her Monday.

    SheriR, what an endeavor! Your MIL and grandchildren will love them, I'm sure ... and you're using all your scraps!
    You certainly have earned your angel wings with these.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
