Harriet's Quilt

My Dear Harriet is one of my best partners in Crime.... 
she is a wonderful binder, encourager, and all around fun lady. and OH BOY -
 can she yell ( her grand-kids run cross country with mine!)  

She is part of a Military RV group, and she decided that a particular gentleman who had served in 
*World War II
*Korea
and!!
*VietNam

Deserved a little recognition - I whole heartedly  agreed!!

Here is the Quilt that Harriet Designed:


I quilted it
What a priveledge!!
The stars got swirlies


The center panel got a lot of echo quilting
Which apparently I did not get a picture of!


I was invited to the presentation - and I am so sad - I didn't get one picture!

But it was so cool.
This military group consisted of members of ALL branches of the military.
They did the *song* for each branch,
they did a POW/MIA ceremony 
it gives me goosebumps just remembering.

And then I was asked to do the presentation with Harriet!

The best part !
The smiles and the tears
and the Hugs!!
