This is what I worked on yesterday. I took a rest break from my umbrella blocks.
I am making a quilt for the men and women who keep us safe. Our Soldiers. Our Troops. Our Heroes.
Actually I am just making a quilt top since there are so many wonderful women (and probably men too) out there in the Quilting Community who will do the quilting. They, so generously, have volunteered their time and skills to this project.
I had been reading the heartwarming stories from the families and the soldiers themselves about the beautiful quilts they had received. I thought about how I could contribute. I have fabric. I have the time. I even have a tiny bit of quilting skills under my belt. So when Nancy, in my Quilt Group, told us about the need for patriotic blocks and quilt tops, I went from “reading about it” to doing it.
I have the easy part. Cutting, sewing, designing.
More details and photos coming up so you can see what I am making.
