    Disappearing 9p--disappeared veteran's quilt

    i saw Eleanor Burns on F&P doing a QOV using the disappearing 9p. I thought that was the neatest thing so decided to do that for a veteran who will be celebrating his 93rd birthday soon. He is so proud of his service and has a wonderful memory to relate incidents. This is a surprise and I hope he likes it. NOTE to self: Use a more contrasting fabric for the center patch. It is almost lost in the whole thing. More hodgepodge than I meant it to be. Third quilt bound in 8 days. Now to start another!!

    I don't think the center is lost at all. It is a wonderful quilt, and he will be so touched by it.

    Bless you! It will mean so much to him! I saw that show and was so inspired. I have picked out material and have a plan to make a quilt for a vietnam veteran who we have known for years! I was certainly proud of all the efforts by the wonderful quilters who made and donated quilts to service men and woman at Fort Hood and other places. Just goes to show us, that there are still wonderful, caring people in the world who serves our country with their heart and soul at so many levels.
    I made my dh a Marine quilt 2 yrs ago and he loved it. Need to make our son one also, he also was stationed at Fort Hood when he served..gee I got lots of sewing to do!

    Thank you all for the kind comments. He is a very dear soul that I didn't even know about 14 months ago. As my mother used to say, "he doesn't have many of this world's goods," which was her way of saying "as poor as a church mouse." Any consolation that he can receive at this stage of his life, he has well deserved. For those of you who have made QOV for so many years, bless your efforts.

    I also saw Eleanore Burns on F&P. The quilt she worked on was beautiful, as is your's.

    Debbie, those are beautiful. Yes, I am eager to give it to him to see his reaction. When they are in hospice, I would think this expression of gratitude would be gratefully received.
