Remembering Our Veterans

Made this one for the Erin Doyle Memorial Poker run held on 23 August 2014 - It was combined with 5 other raffle items and in total the raffle made approx $1200.  Overall the entire poker run proceeds was over 10K and donated to Wounded Warriors Canada.   A few pics of my quilt.....................

 The entire quilt was quilted in a free motion design so that it would become a used quilt.  It was won by a lovely lady who was so happy to have received it.  I am glad it found a new home.  Many hours in the making.....
