    How cool! I was born in that city! Wish I would have known about that as I would have loved to see the quilts. That chapel is amazing and my friend got married there!

I have a number of family members serving in the military now, most especially, my youngest son. I made a quilt & a signature wallhanging of all the people that attending his going away party for him before he left on his first deployment. He doesn't take the quilt when he goes overseas, just the wallhanging, so that we're there with him.

    What a fantastic idea and I'm sure the troops will love and appreciate all your efforts. Isn't it amazing what can happen when we all get together for a common cause? Thank you.

    Breathtaking! I could feel all the "love" put into quilts by just looking at them. Bless the ones who made them.

    What an amazing site to see, so beautiful, makes me tear up. My friends just lost a son in Kahndahar Province a few weeks ago, he was 21 years old and was shot in the barracks, just so sad.
