    My daughter (also in the Army) has a friend from her unit, and he has recently diploid. My daughter, who thinks that we make up a quilt over night :roll: has asked me to "whip up" a quilt real fast so that she can send it to her friend. He has said that it is quilt cold over there. So this is what I "whipped up" for him.
    Just wanted to share with all of you.

    This is the entire quilt, without the binding.

    If you've gotta "whip up something", there's nothing better than a triple rail for speed. This one is WONDERFUL and he will LOVE, Love, love it!! The stars and backing are truly perfect; no wonder she thinks you can just whip these out, LOL!

    It's cool! They really do freeze their rears off. So nice of your daughter to want to send it and awesome of you to oblige her. That's definitely not an overnight project. :0)
