Default 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.

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.
