    Each year our guild send quilts to either deployed or wounded soldiers. Here are two that will go overseas. They are both scrappy and a lot of fun to to do. Has anyone made the second one? Please don't look close the points don't all meet. Can't understand cuz I took such care to get the fabrics lined up, one time they are perfect and the next way off. Maybe you can tell me what I did wrong - because I would like to make another one someday. Thanks.

    Bless you for doing this :) as far as telling you what you did wrong (points not matching on 2nd one) I cant tell from the picture. It looks great.

    Your quilts are beautiful!!! and the soldiers will love them. The other day I saw a clip on AFN (American Forces Network) about soldiers getting quilts in Afghanistan. They really do appreciate them!!!

    Personally, I think you did a great job with both of these quilts! Honestly, I can't not imagine one serviceman/servicewoman who would turn away a quilt just because the points weren't perfectly matched. Pat your self on the back for gifting your love, time and beautiful quilts! :)
