...and we will quilt, bind and ship back to Irene to be labeled for its final award to a very special Veteran...a BIG Thank YOU to Irene for letting us have 'A Ball' with this really neat Quilt of Valor quilt top, and especially to Clairellen, our Dear Friend ;-).
Another Patriotic mod strip quilt completed, ready for borders:
