    This quilt I just finished for one of my soldiers, who is in the Calvary Division of the Army, currently stationed in Northern Iraq.
    I sent it off to him last week, I hope he likes it when he sees it. It was my first try at Free Motion feathering around the borders. :roll:

    ddlbug,
    Sgt. Eric is going to LOVE his quilt. The feathering is beautiful and I really like the pattern. Good job! I see your quilt inspector in the corner waiting to try the quilt out!

    I've heard that they really enjoy adding a little color to their otherwise dull rooms. Very nice of you to do.
