Red, white and blue quilt

Some of you may remember that I have made quilts for the Quilt of Honor program. This time two woman wanted to help, so the three of us went to the quilt store and purchased the material needed. As time rolled on, we heard the story of a young man who is a trainer at the health club where we work out. Dimitry lost his Dad when at war in Afganistan about 14 years ago. Dimitry is a very quiet individual who is very polite and certainly helpful. Yesterday we gave the quilt to him as we wanted him to know that Americans do appreciate his father's sacrifice as well and Dimitry's struggle.



The pictures shows Dimitry, Sandra (me), Carol and Kathy.

The Quilt of Honor program may not have received this quilt, but they certainly inspired the giving. The ladies are ready to work on the next red, white and blue quilt.

By the way, I sat down to do the next EDM in May challenge and just said to myself, "I'm not getting the art that I want to do done, so quit the challenge". Kudos to those who have stuck with the program.

I notice that fewer and fewer people are contributing to this EDM site. Maybe other venues are drawing people. Maybe it's the awful ads via Blogspot. Who knows. I do however, appreciate seeing the wonderful projects that you artists produce.

Joy!

The quilt is beautiful, such a shame that 15 years on lives are still being lost in Afghanistan.
Great to see you in the photo, I think many people have moved towards EDM on facebook, but there are still a few of us who prefer the forum (I hope).
