    LOL.. 50 x 60 would fine too! It would still be a wonderful size to fit over his bed and provide a spot of color and caring. I am sure he will love it.
    Thank you again so much!

    I like it! I can't see it up close, but it looks like it would be very cheery in a dreary place!

Please don't try to denigrate what we are doing here. What we are trying to do is provide some cheer from home for these boys. The quilts, though considered lap size, ARE real quilts. They will help provide warmth as side benefit, but more importantly they provide a moral boost.
    I can't tell you how much I appreciate the love and help from the generous souls here on the board who are helping to provide these quilts in the spirit of support and love for our troops who are in harm's way.
    Thank you again and God Bless you.

    Wow, PenniF - three done? I was pushed to get ONE done. Aren't you glad to be a part of this effort?

Size:  1.13 MBThis is my top before sending it of to LA. Hope to get it back by Monday or Tuesday to bind, label, wash and mail. There is a bottom border, but this is the only pic I took before I took it to the shop to be quilted. I hope he likes it! So happy I got to do this!!
