    I've had several comments on my avatar and a request to post a larger picture, so here goes. The cream border is the Preamble to the Constitution. The silhouettes are a panel. I just kindof made this up as I went, no pattern. I did just get it quilted. It was for my youngest son's graduation from Army Basic and Military Police Training.

    I love it. That's the kind of thing that just gets me. We 'forget' to remember. Speaking for myself, only... of course.

    Actually, I was just reading up in a retro sewing book...about how during WWII, women were recruited into sewing guilds/shops/groups... and encouraged to come together to sew blankets, uniforms, quilts and things for the soldiers. Makes me wonder if anyone is doing something similar.

    Our church has a box party, where we pack boxes of goodies, toiletrees, snacks, and letters for the soldiers of a troup we support in Afganistan. But sewing? ??? hum.
