A Quilt for Steve

I finally finished this quilt and it is on its way to Afghanistan.
 This is the first time that I have worked with Civil War prints and I am happy with the way it turned out. The quilt is machine quilted except for a tiny bit of love and pride. (The words love and pride are hand-quilted near the corners.)

I began the quilt at Quilt Camp in October. Hand quilting was not an option if it was going to be in the mail this year!


 The back is a soft flannel.

Steve, our great-nephew, is stationed in the mountains. It is getting cold there and we thought he could use a little extra warmth and love from home. We are very proud of him!

  1. Beautiful! I'm sure he'll love it and have sweet dreams of home as he's tucked in underneath it at night.
