    Quilt for Soldier

    Long story short, I tried before to post pics, but may actually have succeeded! This is a quilt for a soldier. They don't always want to be reminded of what their job is. So, instead this is in his fav colors!

    What a beautiful quilt. Sewn with love he will surely feel when he cuddles under it. I too would like to thank him for his service.
