    The Challenge quilt for my guild this year was a red, white and blue quilt for charity to be sent to injured servicemen in V.A. hospitals. I looked through a ton of my Quiltmaker back issues and this pattern finally jumped out at me. The original was a Christmas theme, but I could see it in red, white and blue. It's machine pieced and stitched in the ditch. The border was stitched with a modified Baptist Fan pattern, but my camera just would not pick up the detail. I machine embroidered a label with my name and year and the sentiment "In gratitude for your service". I hope the soldier who gets it receives some comfort and peace.

    Beautiful quilt, and sure to be appreciated. My guild has been making quilts for wounded soldiers, and received a letter from one particular serviceman with multiple injuries that had everyone in the room in tears, and motivated to do even more. The quilt never left his side and even after he was able to be at home part-time, the quilt went with him back to the hospital for more treatment. He said he could feel the love and appreciation that went in to making it, and it made him feel better. This will be dearly appreciated by some man or woman, and bring them comfort. It is such a beautiful quilt too. Love the pattern and you did a great job on it.
