    Veteran's Day Quilt

    This is a quilt that was presented to my DH for Veterans Day by the local quilting guild in his home town in KS. The guild's project this year was for each member to make a quilt for a local veteran that they wished to honour on Veteran's Day. This quilt was made by his cousin.

    That is beautiful. I think I saw that in one of my fons & porter magazine the early part of the summer. Have it book marked to make for my son. Thanks for sharing.

    i was thinking what an honor. Was he surprized? Does his cousin belong to this board? Would love to see more of their work. As others have said THANKS FOR HIS SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY. BrendaK
