    My son works at the local Veterans Home. I made these for some that don't get visitors.

    Very nice and what a great gift to give to the ones who gave so much to us! A few ladies in our church quilting ministries gift quilts to our VA as well and it lights up their faces so much! God Bless you for doing this!!

    I did not post these for compliments. Rather in the hope that others will be encouraged to give. I'm so glad that your church is doing good things for deserving people.

    It would have taken me 3 years to make anything close to these. Thank you for doing what some of us cannot.
