Quilt of Valor

After hearing a presentation about Quilts of Valor at our local Quit Guild, I signed up to be a presenter.  My first presentation was a triple one – to a father and his two sons.  I was very moved by the experience.  I knew I wanted to start making some of these quilts for donation.  But, the first one needed to be for my 95 year old father.  I found the idea for this quilt on the Accuquilt website.  I revised the Celebration Table Runner by adding three rows and continuing the flying geese as the border.  I also modified it to make it using the Cotton Theory method.

And I was able to present it to him when I visited him in Florida in February.
