Default A salute to our armed forces

I fell in love with this project the second I laid eyes on it. My DH is an Army Veteran so this really hit home for me. The quilt is finished but I love this photo of it cascading off of the long arm machine so I just used this photo. Enjoy!

Awesome quilt! I thank all who have served and are serving now. Military men and women have my utmost respect! Your quilt is a nice tribute.

Oh my, it is so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes. My grandson (a Marine)is shipping out in just a couple of days for his first deployment. Thank you for showing your very wonderful quilt. Do you mind telling how you made the man on the quilt?
