Finished For Friday

I have been wanting to join litandlaundry's Finished For Friday & now finally I do! If you want to see what other motivated bloggers have accomplished this week you can check on them from the above website.

This week I quilted & bound this QOV, it only needs the label & it will be on its way to another of our brave combat wounded soldiers at the LA Veteran's Hospital. This quilt top was pieced by 86 yr. old Ora Lee from Grand Junction CO. bless her kind heart & sent to me to complete. I wrote to her & sent pics of the finished quilt.
Using red thread I quilted a flag & star pantograph because I was too brain dead & lazy still from jet lag to do custom quilting but I am pleased with the result & some brave soldier will be very happy with it I believe!

Wow! I love the pattern, love that she did such a great job at 86 years old (hope I'm still quilting then) and love that it's going to such a good cause. This post makes my day.

Thanks for joining in on Finished for Friday!

What a beautiful quilt and what a great thing you are doing for our soldiers. I love it. I am a mommy in law to an army soldier who has been in Iraq two times. I love seeing people who take a stand and put themselves out for our guys and gals!

This quilt is so beautiful Ros. I've never seen a flag design before. I admire your skill so much and even more your choices. I'm just so impressed with these gorgeous quilts.
