    Latest Miracle Quilt for Wounded Soldier

    Since I sew for Miracle Quilts, I felt I should be the one to provide the quilt for my step grandson that was injured in Afghanistan. He is now back in the states recovering from a fractured L2 vertibrae. Fortunately, the spinal cord is intact.

    This will be sent asap when I get his address from his father.

    The center is a quilts of valor panel.

    Jean, that is a wonderful quilt! I love the idea of "quilts of valor", and have certainly LA'd enough of them to know...their patterns can be rather,( how should I say it?), plain. Your quilt is not only patriotic, but artistic and beautifully done. Please extend the gratitude and best wishes of my family to your step-grandson...most of the men in my family are ex-servicemen, too.

    Wow, what a beautiful quilt. It does the soul good to make a quilt for someone like this, doesn't it. Our son is on his 4th deployment and I have been working on a quilt that will be auctioned off. Working on it brings a calm to me.
    Blessings!
