Sewing in honor of a soldier .....
Today, with the help of "Betty" (my 1941 Singer Featherweight) I had the honor of sewing 2 red, white and blue star blocks for a fallen hero. I wanted to have "Betty" do the sewing today since she may have, unfortunately done some similar sewing during WW II.
Here are the finished blocks along with some Quilts of Valor labels I found at a local quilt shop, ready to be packed up and mailed out to John'aLee (mother of the fallen soldier's fiance' ). She has received quite a few star blocks pictured here and here , but I think she is collecting blocks until the end of this month if you'd like to make one (she needs quite a few since she is making a quilt for her daughter the fiance' of the soldier, the soldier's mother and 2 younger brothers, and also his best friend.)
Be back soon!
