Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Veteran's Quilt

As I mentioned previously, Saturday was spent making quilts for Veterans. For the last three years, our Michigan Quilt Network region has made Veteran's quilts for a charity project in October. Squares are pre-cut and everyone just stitches them together. I chose to make 4-patch blocks from many of the novelty prints. Here is a picture of the work in progress, followed by the completed top.

 

I plan to make another quilt similar to this one, with patches that I brought home. The member that organizes the sew-in, quilts the tops on her long-arm, then binds them. All are given to Veterans. Some gentleman will enjoy this outdoorsman quilt top, that also has red, white & blue mixed in.
