    Very Nice. Did you do it as a mystery? I would like to make some Quilts of Valor. I have made a couple of "home of the Brave Quilts" I really appreciate everyone who makes things for our service men and women. My DH did 20 years in the Navy, My DD #1 is in Army Reserves heading to Iraq and my DS is in the Navy. Thank you!!!

    Gayle - yes, I did # 1 & 2 as a mystery. It is sooo fun. But #3 clues are going to be weekly & I can't keep up with that so will print them off & do at my leisure - ha ha! The nice thing about the persimmons site is that you only do the top & send it on to her to be quilted & bound! The actual QOV site is quite complicated.

    I'm not familiar with Home of the Brave. Is that the URL? I shouldn't even go there as I also do 5x9 crocheted rectangles for afgans for wounded soldiers. And I keep wanting to do a rag flannel quilt for soldiersangels.org and some Christmas stockings for Operation Santa - www.marinecorpsfamilyfoundation.org

    I can't imagine having 2 children in the military. You poor thing - WORRY must be your middle name.

    Love your quilt and bookmarked the site. I'm hoping to do one as well, but I have toooooooooo many projects now and have to clear the path. I'm usually a start to finish, one at a time quilter, but currently have 6 projects going.

    Thanks for sharing that site annmaire - she has a lot of good information there! In her webshots album, there are photos of two service men sewing blocks - I just had to show those to DH :D
