    Americana quilt finished

    I was asked to make a quilt for my Sergeant's son who was in Afghanistan using some of his camo uniforms. This is what i came up with. The camo was a real bear to work with, plus I had to take off all pockets, take apart seams, remove zippers, etc. I don't think I want to make another one like this. Glad it's done.Name:  DSC02954.JPG

    That is fabulous! I have seen other quilts made using the camo but they seem to look so drab. Your design and use of color really brings the camo to life! Great job!!!

    The colors you chose make the whole quilt pop. Thanks to all the servicemen/women that serve, so we can have freedom. Thanks for sharing.

    I really love your quilt. The colors on the camo make it especially nice. I am sure this did take lots of work, especially taking the uniforms apart. You really made it a work of your heart.
    God bless all our military men and women and their families.

    That's a wonderful quilt! I can imagine how tough it was to work with that camo. The pictures came out well, and I love the star shapes. You did a fantastic job!
