    My daughter just showed me how to post some of my pictures. The next 4 are all "Home of the Brave" quilts that I made in honor of fellow service members in my daughters Army Reserve unit that were Killed in Afghanistan while they were there in August 06

    There are two 12 inch patches on the back of each of the quilts signed by members of their unit while still in Afghanistan

    A couple more quilts. I have been cranking out quilts for all my family members and lots of my children's friends who have all been getting married lately. Bits and Pieces is a favorite pattern because it is quick and easy and uses 12-20 fat quarters depending on how large it needs to be. I enjoy using lots of different fabrics in my quilts

    Okay I just can't decide which one I like the most so I'll give a two thumbs up for them all. Thanks for your families support in the war against terriorism, and giving those families beautiful quilts. They are all just lovely.

    You have quite a wonderful sense of color, and your quilts are fabulous.

    I have donated blocks to Home of the Brave in honor of my father (WWII vet). Your HOB quilts are very touching!

    Where can I find the "Bits and Pieces" pattern?

    I just love your quilts! I love the one for your daughter, Megan. What a lucky girl!

    My mom has made me a quilt too. I should take a picture of it ...

    I think I will.

    I like the one you made with the stars and planets fat quarters too.

    Your quilts are so very nice. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I think I like your purple one best and the Red White and Blue one with your nephew and Cynthia. Gorgeous!

    I, too, would like to thank you and your daughter for your care and work with HOB and DD for her service to our country. We enjoy so many freedoms here in America and we get to enjoy them because of people like your daughter and her deceased friends who have put their lives on the line so we are safe. Thank you. We pray for our soldiers every day!

    Thank you all for your wonder comments. No, I don't quilt 24/7 but I have been able to get about 10-15 done a year. The Twice as nice took me about a month to put together, working on it evenings after work. I don't watch TV at all and my kids are not young any more (youngest is now 19 1/2 and in Navy) Currently I have 8 quilts that are sandwiched and waiting to be quilted laying on my son's bed. I recently had shoulder surgery and havn't been able to do any sewing for almost 11 weeks. I did get to spend a little time Sunday at the machine, but I only last about 10 min before I start hurting. The quilts upstairs will have to wait a while longer until I am able to finish them.

    Thanks, I think it is one of my favorites. My daughter picked out the colors, I, of course, made the final choices on the fabrics. I plan on making that one again with maybe some more purple's. I think I have about 26 different fabrics in that one.

    They are all beautiful, oh if I had to choose my favourite um it would have to be, all of them :lol:
    Hope to be as talented as you one day :D

    I would also like to thank you for your continued support to all the Soldiers, Sailors & Airmen & their families who put their lives on the line everyday for us all here at home. DH served for 30yrs in The Royal Air Force so for me what you are doing is very close to my heart.
