A Friday Finish for the USS George Washington

I'm so pleased that the Sailors on the carrier USS George Washington can now have their own bedding on their "racks."

Yesterday I bound another quilt for my "courtesy newphew," Seaman Dustin Dyer.  This is the quilt I made last fall at Retreat for the "Strip Races."  I took second place in the race, behind my friend Jane.  We were laughing so hard, when my thread broke, I couldn't re-thread the machine!

Here is the backing fabric.  I love that is says "thank you thank you thank you," as these Sailors pretty much give up any semblance to a normal life when they go to sea.

Here is a photo of the ship at sea.  I'm sorry the photo runs over the edges of the blog page -- I lifted it from the USS George Washington Facebook page.

 Fair winds and following seas, Dustin!

And oh, yeah -- it's Friday, so I'm linking up twice:
