    2 more soldier's quilts

    Earlier this week, I posted pics of a red/white/blue jelly roll quilt that I made for wounded soldiers. Here are the other 2. The first is my favorite. It's done in a DP9 w/a large block. I loved the large block fabric and the smaller stripe went perfectly. The other is a DP9. Quilted w/YLI red/white/blue variegated thread on the top and C&C navy thread in the bobbin. Soft N Bright batting. Quilted w/the words "bravery, valor, honor, courage".
    Thanks for looking,
    Dolly

    Thank you for your generosity, creativity and dedication to the our Wounded soldiers. Your are admirable. Each of your quilts are beautiful and inspiring. I'm sure each soldier that receives one feels the love and dedication you've devoted to this project. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    Very nice quilts. I like the D9P made with three fabrics. Makes a nicer pattern than using more than three fabrics.

    I couldn't have said it any better than lollygagging, so I just won't even try! The quilts are lovely and inspirational in more ways than one.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
