    Here are a few warm words from your technophobic friend in northern Virginia. I suspect we are both from the era where the only time-saving technology was an IBM Selectric. We've come a long way, baby. YOU have, anyway. I'm still lagging behind. Loved reading your post. So many quilters do some lovely things for other people but don't get much credit for it. And how nice you had your mother to participate with you. I haven't had my mother for many years. I enjoy all your posts and replies. I'm not shy. Just don't know which button to push.

    I remember this quilt!!
    That Barracks Quilts project was so demanding, so rewarding, and such a blessing to the men and the quilters who so generously participated. Every one of those men came home safely and sound at the end of their tour, praise God!

    Jan, I just saw a news clip on FOX News tonight at 10 pm about this quilt and you speaking about it. What a wonderful thing you and your friends did. Thanks for sharing.
