I started quilting when we were living at Carlisle Barracks, PA (my DH was in the Army). I belonged to a small quilt group (12) and all of our husband's were there for just one year for school. When we all moved away we decided to swap suitcase blocks. We each made "suitcases" that reflected something about ourselves and then attached a luggage tag with our names and where we were moving to. It was a lot of fun. Here is my finished suitcase quilt. It is 34X44"
