I was asked to make this quilt to hang on the roof of the Wounded Warriors Bus (www.servingproject.org) and this is the grand pattern!  I've started it and will post my progress! It's going to be the largest quilt I've ever done!   This bus was designed and done by volunteers to take wounded warriors to and from their doctors appointments.  It's a beautiful bus.  And Keith, Board of Directors, met me at another fundraiser and asked if I could add a womans touch to it.  After he told me a bit about the bus this is what I came up with.  The purple heart in the center is designed by a friend of mine, Janette Killough.

I think it's just great.  I think I'm going to do some quilts for the local VA hospital.

I'm so glad to hear so many quilters doing as much as they can for our VETS!  To me they should be cherished...of course I'm partial since everyone in my family is a vet! My brother is currently serving his 4th deployment in Iraq....:(  But he's a blessed hero, medic that saves lives and comes home every time!

So - this is your design for the quilt?  Looks wonderful.  Love all of the battle ribbons in the design

Casper this pattern is copyrite specifically for this quilt as a whole.  But the Purple Heart section in the middle is a pattern that Jenette Killough sells and the ribbon racks I have drafted on EQ and sell them each at $2.00.  The actual quilt is in my album and she's overall 14.5 ft long by 7.5 wide!!  you can contact me at operationvalor@gmail.com if interested.  Glad you like it!
