    This was acually my second quilt I ever made. The top was done over a year ago and Janice's and my other projects kind of pushed this one aside (it turned out to be my first UFO!). To make a long story short I decided to donate it to our church who has dedicated a wall to our service men and women serving in the military presently. Our youngest son Steve is presently in Iraq and his picture is on the Wall. Because of time, Janice and her Mom, Grace, helped finish it and the quilt was hung Wednesday night after the service. It has been decided that the quilt will be used to honor all military service men and women, past, present and future and they will be asked to sign the quilt. So far we have 2 signatures.

    Very pretty and what a nice thing to do. I bookmarked this. My daughter's fiance is in the infantry. Right now he is in training but will deploy sometime around October. I've been looking for a patriotic pattern and this is just perfect.

    That's a beautiful quilt and a warm and touching memorial. Brought some tears to my eyes. God speed to your son and all our troops.
