Another one in the rear view mirror

     A Red, white and blue exploding squares quilt went to its new home yesterday. I had finished this quilt top a while ago, but just finished the quilting. I had this great backing fabric that seemed perfect for it. Through a support group at church, a quilt was requested for a man who is battling colon cancer. I had nothing available then. All I had was this recently completed RWB quilt, which I am not sure would work for him. When I asked about him, I was told he was a vet! So, of course the quilt was washed, labeled, and put in its tote, then bagged in an XL zip lock, and given to the contact person. 
     Now to get some more comfort quilt tops done with an acting up long arm.
The quilt is not yet washed, it fluffed up quite nice. As soon as a quilt is washed, it goes in the bag for chemo recipients.

I love the quirky patriotic fabric- had to keep it in one big piece

Nice quilt. Reminds me that I should be at Quilts of Valor today, but, this week is too busy.

This turned out great. Don't you love it when what you have is just perfect for the need?

The quilt was perfect for the recipient. I hope he does well with his chemo treatments.

It's nice to have a few quilts available when the need arises.

My neighbor is battling colon cancer, too -- I'm so glad you had this quilt for your veteran patient!
