    Retirement quilt for son in Air Force

    Finally finished the binding on our son's retirement quilt. I enjoyed every minute while working on this quilt as it was a reminder that he would soon be out of the military. I sent it to Charismah for quilting, she is the best! I asked her to do a Babpist fan because I wanted something simple to go with the simple design of the the churn dash pattern. I think it turned out beautiful.

    Your quilt and the quilting are beautiful! Please tell your son thank you for serving for me. I am grateful to each and every one in the military that fights to protect our freedom and the freedom of our children. May God bless him!!
