I am not a scrap quilter at all. I usually give away my scraps to either my guild or quilting friends. But I have made up a pattern to use all the wonderful red white and blue scraps from my Quilts of Honor. That is what I am calling the quilts for the families of those killed in action.
I spent alot of time cutting up scraps and have a nice box full of them. The top goes together quite quickly and is fun to make.
I am working on quilts for a family of a young man who lost his life in the war. There are several family members who will be receiving them. When I know who is getting what--I will do a blog about that. There are 5 quilts for them.
I am so glad I decided to do the quilt class projects in red white and blue. This one had to be made quite a bit bigger. It was fun to do but I doubt I will make it again for QOV. It is too fussy and takes too long.
I will be sending this to the family of a soldier killed in the War. I just hope they can feel the love when they wrap it around them. We all know that a quilt can help in the healing process.
I hear people saying we don't need this war But, I say there's some things worth fighting for What about our freedom and this piece of ground We didn't get to keep 'em by backing down They say we don't realize the mess we're getting in Before you start your preaching let me ask you this my friend
Have you forgotten how it felt that day? To see your homeland under fire And her people blown away Have you forgotten when those towers fell? We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell And you say we shouldn't worry 'bout bin Laden Have you forgotten?
They took all the footage off my T.V. Said it's too disturbing for you and me It'll just breed anger that's what the experts say If it was up to me I'd show it everyday Some say this country's just out looking for a fight Well, after 9/11 man I'd have to say that's right
Have you forgotten how it felt that day? To see your homeland under fire And her people blown away Have you forgotten when those towers fell? We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell And we vowed to get the one’s behind bin Laden Have you forgotten?
I've been there with the soldiers Who've gone away to war And you can bet that they remember Just what they're fighting for
Have you forgotten all the people killed? Yeah, some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field Have you forgotten about our Pentagon? All the loved ones that we lost and those left to carry on Don't you tell me not to worry about bin Laden Have you forgotten?
