While this is not a spectacular, amazing, wonderfully challenging quilt - it was one of the best things my kids and I have done for a while.
One of the men that we work very closely with in the Warriors in Transition Battalion, and who helps us immensely...is .... a.... Steelers Fan.
I mean - a true, die-hard, yellow and black fan. He has such a passion for this team, and such a passion for helping our soldiers... that we just had to do something.
The boys and I were shopping in Joann's - and they want me to tell you - it was a sacrifice, but that Sportsman's Warehouse is right next door - so no pulling of the man card happened......
and we found this Steeler Fleece. So we picked some up, and picked up some of that crazy bright yellow....
We quilted it with lots of squiggly lines, and then sliced up the edges.....
And we were able to give it to him this week! Out of all the Steeler stuff he has - you will never believe - he did not have a blanket!! So we were tickled, AND i finished something ;-)
