Friday Finish -- Quilt of Valor

Now that I'm back home and have reliable internet service, it's time to resume my Friday Finishes.

Today's quilt is from a tutorial on Jaybird Quilts. I made this quilt as a Quilt of Valor. Now the quilt is done, the pillowcase is done, the label is done, the journal is done, and I am going to deliver this quilt to a Quilts of Valor chapter soon.

I had fun making the quilt, but I think I learned the most from writing the journal. Every day I worked on this quilt, I wrote about what I was doing and how I was thinking about my soldier. The quilt is so personal to me now, and I hope it is to him/her as well.

I have made many quilts for this wonderful group and I've had the pleasure of meeting many of the group organizers. I've been blessed to meet a mother of a soldier who received one of my quilts. Many tears were shed by both of us! I've also received some wonderful thank you notes. I cherish them and revisit them occasionally.

Please check out Quilts of Valor and see what you can do to help them!
