Our church has 2 young people active in the military and I wanted to try and honor them on July 4th. I got the idea from a Quilts of Valor website. Kinda leaves me in crunch time since it's June 10th but lets see how it goes. One is a man so I went traditional and the other a new mom so while I used red/white and blue I bought tone on tone red and blue with small flowers so she'll have something a little more feminine. In the military I don't suppose you get a lot of that.
Here's a picture of what I started last night for Michael. I'll post the finished top once I have it done and Gina's once I decide what to do with her's.
