Welcome to my quilting journal. I enjoy expressing myself through fiber. Tiny pieces of fabric, vintage quilt blocks combined with hand stitches create my art. Keeping this journal helps me document my thoughts and progress. So glad you could join me, Happy Quilting.

I made this AAQI quilt about a month ago, when the news was filled with the most recent Metal of Honor recipients. Last night on the news was a story about a solider who died 40 years ago in a helicopter crash in Vietnam. His remains are being returned to the St. Louis area today for burial. I thought today was a good day to show my Thank You quilt. In honor of all the men and women who have protected and are still protecting our great nation. The quilt is 8 x 10 inches with an appliqued solider and a tri-colored background, hand quilted. Today, I for one will enjoy the great freedom I have been given because of others. Happy Quilting!
