Here I am again, giddy with accomplishment! I get the most unique feeling when I finish a bed sized traditional quilt. It is just too hard to explain.
A few months ago, I made an online appeal for red/white or blue/white nine patches to incorporate into a quilt for my local American Legion post that is building a new facility. They currently meet in a courtroom, restaurant, or other public place.
I think it is important for all Americans to show pride and honor to all veterans. Their selfless service is what our lives are built upon. Stop to consider how different your life would be if no one had defended our country 60 years ago or 8 years ago when it was attacked.
So, I wanted to do something, though it be small in comparison, to show my appreciation and to give the Legion something to earn funds. I was blessed to receive donations from a few special friends from Texas and California.
As you can see in the pictures, the quilt is a queen size and is reversible. Though the layout is simple, the quilt really pops from the varigated red white & blue thread. I loved working with this thread & highly recommend it (YLI long staple Egyptian Cotton).
I am off now to call the gentleman to come pick it up. Thank you all for reading, and for helping me make this become reality
