    2 more soldier's quilts

    Earlier this week, I posted pics of a red/white/blue jelly roll quilt that I made for wounded soldiers. Here are the other 2. The first is my favorite. It's done in a DP9 w/a large block. I loved the large block fabric and the smaller stripe went perfectly. The other is a DP9. Quilted w/YLI red/white/blue variegated thread on the top and C&C navy thread in the bobbin. Soft N Bright batting. Quilted w/the words "bravery, valor, honor, courage".
    Thanks for looking,
    Dolly

    Thank you for your generosity, creativity and dedication to the our Wounded soldiers. Your are admirable. Each of your quilts are beautiful and inspiring. I'm sure each soldier that receives one feels the love and dedication you've devoted to this project. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    Very nice quilts. I like the D9P made with three fabrics. Makes a nicer pattern than using more than three fabrics.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I couldn't have said it any better than lollygagging, so I just won't even try! The quilts are lovely and inspirational in more ways than one.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    My youngest son is now serving in the Air Force. Son #2 (I have 5 sons) served in the army. Here are the active duty in my family at this time:
    DS's son, daughter and son-in-law (in the Air Force).
    SIL's son (in the Army).
    That's not counting those that have served and are now retired or just out.
    Here's hoping & praying that no one else's loved one will ever need one of these quilts.
    This is in my email signature "Proud Parent of an American Airman". And I am. Very!!!
