    2 UFOs Ta-done for military pilots

Size:  1.52 MBThese quilts are going to two brothers who are military pilots. One is Air Force and the other is Navy. I taught the Air Force pilot when he was in first grade a long time ago. His mother has kept in touch even with my many moves. We deliver them Monday. The Navy pilot will be there. It took me four years to get them Ta-done, so I hope they like them.

    Thanks everyone. The large quilt has a house in the center with lighthouses printed on it, because the family lives near a lighthouse. Both quilts have a square with a Revolutionary War print near the beginning (top) and a 9/11 print at the end. There is also fabric with the Star Spangled Banner words on it. Part of the fun was finding those fabrics. Yes, I'll be sure to thank them for their service. Only one will be home. So thankful for all of our service members who do their best to protect us.

    What a wonderful way to honor two of our service men. Without them we would not be the "land of the free because of the brave".

    That is so nice of you to make these quilts for these two military pilots. You did an excellent job piecing and quilting both of them.
