What materials did you use? This is where it began! Northcott Stonehenge: Copper Penny, Fat Quarters. Just love at first sight. Then Cool Waters, Shades of Grey, Garden Party, Benartex and Robert Kaufman. I cannot believe I finished these two Quilts. They were presented to Military of High Rank in Afghanistan. I have the photos. Thread used was Coats and Clark, Gutermann, Presencia, and a favorite YLI, variegated, Primary - Red White and Blue, Jewel, Primary #V11 and Cream to Brown. I love zigzag stitching. It is wonderful, to have such Grand Materials and a Singer Sewing Machine.

That Patch gave me and still does Nightmares! It is Ethnic. There language is on That Patch! I Zigzagged all the words. and created it out of Solid Fabric, and Stonehenge and BDU's worn by My Son as A Tanker In Training at The Box. I do hope they believe I did ok.

I salute your valiant work in this quilt, both in the making and the spirit behind it. I think these quilts are a genius idea and they will be cherished I'm sure by the soldiers who receive them,

Oh! They you for kind words. I so nervous and scared. The Patch means so much to the Afghanistan Soldiers. Writing with a sewing machine in a foreign language just was so nerve wracking. I still pray ever night that they were ok with the language. I will never really know. They just seem so pleased. I hope their families and friends all enjoy the quilts.
