Patriotic Air Force Veteran Quilts
After my quilt guild made patriotic quilts
for veterans in nursing homes in the area, I decided to make a patriotic
veteranís quilt for each of my brother-in-laws and my husband. I thought they
should not have to wait until they were in the nursing home to have one.
Now I made two of these Air Force Quilts for veterans: one for my husband's brother, who retired from the Air Force after 31 years of service, and another for a dear friend, who flew refueling planes during his service, then had a career as a commercial airline pilot. The letters are made of "log cabin blocks" with the Air Force emblem in the background to made a finished size of 62" by 67", a nice lap-size quilt.
