Look at our first quilt!

There is a new botton on my sidebar, the "Freedom Isn't Free Quilting Bee" This effort was the brain-child of a woman from California named Natascha- please visit her blog to see more pictures and details about the project. This quilt and was made with quilt blocks contributed by 11 AnySoldier supporters...and then the hard work of putting it all together and backing it was done by Natascha. Thank you so much!

This quilt was called the "Pioneer Quilt", and aside from the size of the 8.5" squares- we had free rein for colors and themes. Amazing contuinity considering these came from all over the country don't you think?

More quilts are planned for the future and there are even more quilters signed up raring to go.

Originally I'd volunteered to make 4 squares, but due to the good turnout only one was needed. The remaining squares might make it into future quilts. This is and example of one of my Army star blocks. This block is made of 41 pieces of cloth!
