    I offered to send quilts to my son in Afghanistan for him to hand out. Starting with the 11 guys he bunks with, the first 3 went out last week. I have three more that should be ready to mail in 2 weeks. I work so they worked on when I time off.
    Waiting to hear he received these and how they were accepted.
    All the patterns are quick and easy, using the Accuquilt Studio available for use at the art studio I work at as my 2nd job.

    They are wonderful and you're working two jobs and doing all of this. I really need to rearrange my priorities!
