    This was a mystery quilt – 6 clues, 2 each month. It is for Quilts of Valor. You just make the top then send it to a gal in Oklahoma who puts it together & does the quilting & binding. Then it is sent to Landstuhl, Germany. That is where the injured soldiers go to be before getting sent home. The goal is to give every wounded soldier one.

    It was fun to see all the blocks accumulate then finally see how the whole thing goes together.

    Another mystery is starting in June or you can still make this one. You can also make just 1 block (or 2 or 3, etc) if you don’t want to make a whole quilt top. Here’s the link with all the info:

    Your hard work shows - that is so great, and will be appreicated. Thanks for your efforts for our soldiers, and for passing on the info.
    When life gives you scraps, make quilts!
