Military Quilt

Jill has just mailed off the latest beauty from the Murfreesboro Sewing Ladies group to a soldier in Afghanistan.  His wife is a student at MTSU that crossed my path.  Tyler is stationed at Camp Leatherneck.

The ladies made string blocks, sewed them together, Jill put on borders and passed it on to a longarm quilter.  Last Tuesday, I saw ladies sewing on the binding.  And by Friday it was on it way to Tyler.  Jill also filled the box with other items he and his buddies could use over there - snacks, chap stick and other items the group made - pillowcases and cooling ties.  Hopefully Tyler and his buddies will know we are thinking good thoughts for them and feel how much we appreciate their efforts to keep us safe.
