I am very happy that I found the POW/MIA fabric that I've been searching for months. I would find it.......only to discover that they were out of it and it was on back order. Finally I found some at Fabric Paradise Their prices were reasonable and shipping wasn't too bad. I was happy that I could just order 1/2 yard. I only needed enough to make a 12-inch block.
I've been working on a Memorial Quilt for Danny for the last 3 years. Danny died December 26, 2004.....he was my best friend and I wanted to do something to honor our friendship. I designed the quilt to fit his personality, likes, and special memories of the times we spent together. It will be a work of art that will take years to finish. It has been fun searching for special fabrics for the quilt. It took me over 2 years to find the perfect fabric for the center square....it is a panel with wolves on it......that represents the passion that we shared for wolves. Then the next section around is 12blocks that represent things that were special to Danny.......fishing, hunting, POW/MIA, Army, Agent Orange, waterfalls, camping, etc. The next round of blocks for the quilt will be 4 special interests of Danny's......bull riding, Native American, Oldies but Goodies Music, and I'm still undecided on the last section. There will be flying geese blocks, Volkswagon bug blocks, log cabin blocks and more.
