Vintage Stars and Stripes [work in progress]

starsandstripes1

we had a dear friend of my husbands admitted to the hospital with no exact explanation as to exactly what has happened, he was a healthy guy and this was quite unexpected. he’s still in ICU and doctors are working hard to diagnose the cause…

meanwhile their medical bills and additional expenses of his wife’s loss of income along with having to travel 2 hours round trip to be with her husband is adding up. friends and family have really stepped up with raising funds for this sweet family and i wanted to do my little part…

so what’s a girl to do…?? answer: quilt!! the finished quilt will go up for auction when complete and 100% of the funds will be donated to their family.. i’m really excited about it!

i had such a good time working on my eight little squares quilt and with presidents day weekend approaching, i knew i wanted to go with a patriotic theme, not to mention our friend is a fellow police officer, so it just felt right.

progress.. february 18.. i’ve batted, basted and begun my quilting!
