Default Veteran Donation Quilt

Our local small museum (about 1500 sq. ft.) is holding Veterans benefit day. I have been very sick for the last three weeks with shingles but I so wanted to make a little something that they could sell raffle tickets for so this is what I threw together. Not fancy, not perfect but as Jenny Doan says, "finished is better than perfect. Thanks for looking.

Front. It looks a little wonky because I am very short
and this is the best I could do with it on the floor

Back. Pieced together from scraps. The outside red
pieces are a very small red print.

Not healed yet. Still cannot wear clothes. Never want to deal with shingles again. My advice is to get the shot. Thanks

Beautiful quilt! Glad you are feeling better! Shingles are nasty! My doc says I am walking proof that everyone needs a shingles shot! Still battling flare ups over 3 years later!

It is lovely, wonderful, a treasure. Feel better! I am amazed you were able to do this while struggling with Shingles. Thank you for donating this for Veterans, too.

Good to know. I had the first one and still got shingles, but it was very mild and not much bother at all.

twinkie - I can't believe you just "threw that together." It's beautiful.
