QUILTS OF VALOR

Today I am working to quilt my first quilt for "Quilts of Valor." These quilts are presented to injured service men and women. I currently have a son in the Armed forces who has already recieved a Quilt of Valor.

This quilt was made my Nancy Miller and presented to my son Ryan by Susan Thomas when he came home on leave. He was injured in battle but thankfully his injury was not serious enough to send him home early, however it was serious enough that he was awarded a Purple Heart. He will once again be going into battle so I would like to ask everyone to keep him and all our brave service men and women lifted up in prayer daily. We all want peace in the world, but remember that it does not come free or cheap, we owe a debt of gratitude to these brave men and women who fight for our safety. God Bless them All.

I'm glad your son is o.k., Jeanne. And I look forward to seeing the quilt that you are quilting.

I just finished the quilt and I am not very pleased with it I haven't worked on the short arm in awhile and just got it set back up. It just isn't rolling smoothly so it caused alot of unsteady lines that were supposed to be straight and are not. I think I will go back to the all over meadering on the next one and throw a star in here and there for interest.
