    I love the veterans quilts and being a Air Force Veteran myself I figured I would purchase this, even though it was not made for me, but the intended did not want it, so I bought it and can pretend it was made for me, right?. Just wanted to share, it is made by the Munising Quilt Guild. Awesome huh?!

    It appears it was really made for you, it just took a detour getting to you. After all it was intended to belong to a person that had served her/his country (which you did) and it was made for someone that would love and appreciate it, which you do. So that tells me, it was made for you.

    Good for you to get this. My Sister in law refused a quilt I made her. No one else has ever refused one.
    Good for you. Thank you for your service to Our Wonderful Country.

    GOOD FOR YOU! Much thought and feeling went into this quilt along with a lot of work. Anyone with past or present military service would be proud of it!

    Oh, thank you so much for you kindness and your welcome! Serving our country was a pleasure for me, I am American and proud to be American! I love this great country, and a few others, but America is my HOME! And I will defend her, our rights, and our citizens until my last breath if need be. OK now you all have made me emotional, a huge hug to everyone!
