But I can show the other project that is on my design wall. It is an Honor Flight quilt. Several times a year we have groups of 30-35 that leave from St. Louis on their way to visit the war memorials in Washington, DC. through the Honor Flight program. One lady from our guild gets up at 1 a.m. in order to get to the airport at 4 a.m. to present each veteran with an honor flight quilt. We have made more than 100 Honor Flight quilts. She has gone a step further this time. She embroidered the center design and gave them out to volunteers at the guild to make a quilt for the next group out of St. Louis.
If you can't read it, it says "Home of the Free because of the Brave". There is a flag, boots and dog tags in black embroidery. They are 36" - 40" square as requested by the sponsors of the program so they can take and use them on the plane and buses throughout the day.
I also received a donation of a Quilts of Valor from another guild member at the same meeting. It was pieced by Shirley H. with patriotic fat quarters that she won in a contest.
A couple more finishes this week too. These were made by a friend to be used as table toppers or wall hangings during the Christmas holidays.
This only has HST with an accent strip randomly placed.
