May Finish. But more exciting to me is that I got 26 blocks out of my WIP pile.
Krista's quilt as a practice quilt so I would get at least a little better at FMQ. It really doesn't come naturally to me at all.
Stripes That Bind bundle for the binding from my favorite fabric shop. I think it looks like it was made for this quilt.
Krista gave me that her mom's friend's family had given her. She brought it home to Arizona from Seattle in a Coleman Cooler, so we call it Cooler fabric. LOL This was a pretty large piece, although not quite wide enough so I added a couple of coordinating pieces to make it work.
ECMQG is participating in a large quilt request from Project Linus. They specifically asked for gender neutral or even numbers of boy and girl quilts. They are specifically to go to Camp Corral, a local camp for military children who have a parent who is deployed, wounded or fallen.
I really had fun quilting these quilts, and perhaps I made a little progress in the FMQ department. In any event, though, I hope they will keep a child warm, and perhaps let them know that someone cares. These men and women have given great service to our country, and as always, it is often the children who suffer most.
With a husband who served 23 years in the military, a good bit of it in combat, I often think, "There but for the grace of God go I."
