Quilt of Valor

My Administrative Assistant (for my One math class) (Algebra 2) has a son in the Marine Corps.  In a COLD place... and his Mom wants to send him a hug and some warmth.

Sounds like a quilt to me.

So, the ladies in our Quilting Bee made patriotic blocks - and I helped get them into a quilt.  'Mom' will tell you that she will NEVER set blocks on point again - but it was not really that hard (once we figured out that 3 or 4 of the squares were not the same size square as the others).

Today three of us finished the binding.  

 In keeping with a patriotic theme, our lovely Bee Quilter added this
 flag to the center of the quilt as she quilted it.

Soon it will be shipped away to a far-off place.  Wrapped up in that package are prayers and hugs, warmth and encouragement for that young man...  For that young man we remember from his beginning, and are pleased and proud of what God has made him to be today.

Arrive safely, little quilt.  Deliver our love.
