    The blue triangles have Eagles. The stripes have ribbons and stars. The rest of the quilt is a mix of designs.

    As I worked on this, it found its story. The story of Martha Washington and her service to Veterans is outstanding. This quilt honors both service and sacrifice of American service men, women, and their families.

    This is beautiful. If I could suggest? Please make this information part of your letter/journal that goes with the quilt. Then the story of the quilt becomes part of the story of the veteran's life. It's very powerful!

    From my award speech:

    Your quilt has a label and in the presentation case is a note that will tell you more about this quilt. As of today, the story of this quilt becomes your story as well.

    You have created a true treasure! Thank YOU for your service to our veterans.

    Thanks everyone for the praise! It feels good to complete it and I can hardly wait for the day I pass it to someone deserving.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
