    Quilts For Veterans

    Our Guild has several places for our donations and one is for the Veterans. I just finished making 2 and donated them at the last meeting. They are both 54 X 70 and the pattern is Turning Twenty. Due to the size we need to make them, these are a little smaller so I re-named them Turning Twelve (these are 12 blocks instead of the normal 20). I put a close-up of the darkest fabric so you could see how special it is. Thank you for looking.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful work! Thanks for honoring those who serve/served our country!

    Wonderful fabric -- and the other choices are perfect too. So good of so many to remember that a few good men & women are keeping us safe, able to enjoy our freedoms due to their efforts.

    They should all feel a very warm glow receiving these great quilts.

    You are so kind and generous to do this. Thank you.
