Every so often I meet someone and later get an email from them. This is one I wanted to share.
Sometime ago Kelli and I spoke at the guild meeting of the Muscatine, Iowa quilters. While there a gentleman came up and introduced himself to us. He told me about a quilt that he designed for his son who served our country in Afghanistan. I told him that I would love to see a photo of the quilt. Don was so kind and sent it to me. The quilt is so fitting for someone coming home…
I know many others of you will love seeing the quilt as it offers a lot of inspiration. Don is a hand quilter too.
I just love the quilt and was sure others of you would love seeing it as well.

Love seeing this, Jo! Remembering our soldiers and Marines is very special to a lot of us. My son is a Marine currently serving in Afghanistan. I thank them all for their service and dedication and of course pray for their safe return. This quilt is beautiful and will be a keepsake for years to come. Thanks for sharing.
Very handsome quilt!! Also many “elements” that can be used in future quilts.
