    Wanted to share pictures of the completed quilts I made .
    These will be going to Veterans who enter the Hospice Center I volunteer at.

    Only have 6 complete but plan to keep making them as I have the time,money and fabric.

    I showed them to my supervisior and she's so excited. Just have to add labels to them. Wasn't sure what to put on them so ask her .

    Here's the label I made. NOT Great

    I think they are great and will provide both comfort and perhaps a sense of remembered pride.

    What a special thing for you to do.

    Where did you find the eagles that you used? Especially the one with the flying eagle and the flag in the background? Would like to do something like this for wounded warrior quilts.

    Good for you for being able to figure out your machine so that you can make your own labels more easily than before.
