Default New Top Just Finished

A young man my son went to high school with is in Bethesda MD struggling to regain his life after losing both legs and one arm in Iraq. I have been working on a quilt for him and I just finished piecing the top. I have attached a picture I took with my camera phone. I hope the picture shows up good enough for you all to see it. Here is a link to his story if you are interested.

It's a beautiful quilt. Is there a meaning behind the music fabric you included?

Your quilt is very nice. Thank you for sharing his story with us. He is one man who gave an awful price for his country I imagine the quilt will give him much comfort in the future

That is a beautiful quilt, but my heart aches for the young man.
