    Latest quilt-patriot "QOV" for my son

    I made this by 4th of July for my son, who was in Iraq in 2005-2006. I got the fabric super cheap at an estate sale, and gave the rest of it to someone on a Facebook quilt forum who does a lot of QOV's.

    I'm not crazy about Red, white, and blue quilts, but I think you did a great job distributing the colors in the design. Very nice.

    That is super! My son was also over there in 2006 -- so glad he is back (and went again last year but back once again).

    Thanks! All the prints were really busy, so I added the red to balance it a bit. I'm not a big fan of red/wht/blue quilts generally, either, but it grew on me. He likes it and now he's finishing his last year of college, I'm very proud of him. I'm sure you're glad to have your nephew back laceybritt! And also your son, Moonwork! My son says it's harder for us than for them.

    I myself LOVE RWB quilts & this QOV is beautiful! I love the fabrics in it... busy but appropriatly so. This is awesome! I, too, make QOVs & find it to be soooooo satisfying, don't you?

    Please thank your DS for his service for me. My DD is engaged to a Marine so this is all starting to hit home for me.

    Beautiful, all the colors look so crisp. Can't go wrong with the Red, White and Blue. Thank your Son for his service to our wonderful country. I have a Grandson 24 who served 2 different times in Iraq. He is State Side now serving in the Old Guard.

    I think it's great! I love QOV quilts and what they stand for and admire the people who make them (I hope someday I will be good enough to make some). Please thank your son for me for his service to our great country.
