    I think the pattern you are looking at could work just fine. It should be pretty easy. HST are not that hard. I can see it with the shield in the center. Looks like you are off to a good start.

    Kim -

    I hope your quest is successful. I will be no help in that regard, but I wanted to pop in and ask you to say "Thank You" to your son for Kim and me.

    Blessings,

    The white Misty Fuse (pink package) would be fine. It doesn't show in the finished product anyway. The ultraviolet is more for archival quality/heirloom/museum quality stuff.

    I think there are just 3 types: white, black, and ultraviolet (resists changes in color due to light exposure-- probably a good idea for wedding gowns so it doesn't yellow over time).

    Okay pink it is!! Im going to get extra so I can practice. I cant believe the first time Im doing applique and its on (to me) a huge project. To be honest Id hoped to avoid it entirely. Lol. I saw on F&P the other night, that McKenna Ryan was on. Her method seemed totally do'able... I wonder if I could do this like that? I think I already deleted the show from my TiVo tbough.

    Kim, the triforce would be easy to piece with equiltateral triangles, I think the block pattern would be called pyramid, with the picture of the shield-applique would probably be the easiest. But if you want to piece something Make a grid over a copy of the shield to see where you would want to make your templates for piecing and add 1/4 inch around each piece for your seam. If you have a quilt shop near they may be able to guide you or give your some individual lessons.

    May I interject a thought here? A quilt may be a bit bulky for him to take back with him after R&R. If you want to wait til Christmas to give it to him, consider mailing it to his APO while he is still here so he doesn't have so long to wait for it when he returns to base.

    Then again, it can get quite cold early in Afghanistan and he might be really happy to have it before Christmas! A wool batting would help to make it both light and comfortable in many seasons. I use my quilt every night even when the temps are 76 in the cottage. Sometimes the guys roll their quilts for a pillow; wool batting would work well for this purpose, too, as it's, again, lighter weight and easier folded/rolled.

    Have fun with this, he'll be ecstatic!

    I'm not able to help you with your project, but just want you to say "Thank you" to your son for his service.

    Just remember to make the blue background of the shield big enough so your outside decoration will go over it with it underneath
