Finish It Up Friday

For such an easy quilt, this one has taken awhile to finish!

Quilt #15 for 2012, "American Valor" is the cover quilt of the January/February 2012 issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting.  It took longer to collect all the fabrics from various etsy and eBay shops than it did to piece the quilt. 

I made this quilt for a sailor on my son's ship, the USS George Washington.  When I sent My Little Sailor his "Jacob's Ladder" quilt, he said "Everyone likes it, they want you to make one for them."  Well -- there are more than 5000 people on the ship.  SO I made one quilt for them to raffle, and I hope they will use proceeds from the raffle to support one of their community relations projects on their summer cruise.
