Here's to procrastination

I seem to have a theme going when it comes to getting things done right under the wire. This quilt is no exception. I had to have it turned into my lqs but closing time yesterday. These pictures were taking a quarter to five, when they close at five. That's pretty sad since I have had to top done forever.

Maybe there is something to the saying about time flying when your having fun, or your children are growing up. It seems like the other day that I signed up to make this quilt.
 So I wanted to share the reason I actually decided to do this. Most people signed up for the chance to win a janome or a go baby cutter. Being someone who never wins anything and I mean anything, I decided to make this because all i could think about was if my brother (who is on deployment in the middle east) got hurt I would want him to have a quilt that someone made to honor his sacrifice. I know that most Quilts of Valor quilts are more patriotic in the shades of red white and blue and hopefully some woman will appreciate the colors of red, white and blue but the more feminine aspect of it.
 Until next time please pray for our troops whatever your position on our wars are. God Bless!
