    Nice of you to help and get others to help you. I would have had to back out. I love making quilts and make one after another but, I pace myself, only working a couple hours a night and weekends while doing my laundry and housework. I work full time also.
    I'm sure they will be appreciated.

    Oh no. It wouldn't be fair to have a couple of the boys get a quilt and a bunch of them not get one. I appreciate their sacrifice and their bravery and hope I can help brighten their days

    You are blessed to have such generous members of the board helping you with your 9.

    Yes. This board is a blessing and I so thank every one who is helping. It will mean a lot to the boys. Thank goodness it is only 15 and not a couple hundred!

    Hope she can get them to Afghanistan. Our church made scarfs for the troops but they were not able to send them because they couldn't be colors and the troops are issued scarfs.

    I have one made up in blue and brown, however it does have some tiny flowers in it. If you want it let me know.

    My guess would be she has passed the entire project off on others and won't learn a thing from this except others will cover her spur of the moment ideas.
    And it is a wonderful project to be involved in with better planning. I think many have already paced themselves with their own projects with no time to spare.
    I am also wondering about the mailing because our post office is already having a problem with mail not coming in from one place until 10 A.M. to be sorted and delivered and we are barely getting our mail before closing.
    Please tell her you can only complete half and let her find another person or two. It should be a fun project with little stress for everyone.

    I think with all her volunteers to help it could be done is about a month, 2 weeks is going to be stressing the OP greatly. But I'm sewing my 4 patch scrappys this morning and hope to get them in the mail this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

    I hadn't thought about her DIL having to do the other 6, if she's a new quilter she may not be doing intricate blocks, maybe just big squares.

    Do you plan to quilt or tie these?
