My daughter is an occupational therapist and her students have been writing to a lady soldier this entire school year and she writes back to them. It was decided, now that school is almost out, that the children would each design a star block to put into a wall quilt. Yesterday Julie came over and I helped her add the navy star borders to finish the quilt top. The children are anxious to see it!
Now they will each sign a piece of muslin for the backing and we will quilt it and off it will go to the soldier. I just love this thoughtful gift! The children can not imagine how it will look, Julie says, and they will be so proud.
