Some of my blocks along with blocks made by a quilter in Virginia and a quilter in Florida were made into a Quilt of Valor by a quilter in Wisconsin and presented to a veteran in a ceremony in Chicago honoring veterans of the 442nd RCT. I received a thank you note from him with a caricature of him holding the quilt.
How nice is this!
The veteran, George Okamoto, also received the Congressional Gold Medal and was written up in his hometown newspaper in Indiana.
George, thank you for your service to our country and your contribution to my freedom which I enjoy every day.
Now just between you and me I admit that I am thrilled that some blocks I made have honored a deserving vet. It's really a nice feeling and I feel very happy about this. It's terrific to hear back about something I did.
I spent all of yesterday working on the QOV I'm making for my brother and I think I can see a light at the end of this tunnel.
I tried sewing together 4 of the 6 inch blocks to make a 12 inch block and I like the results.
I'm going to mix them with the other 12" blocks I have and hopefully it will all go together easily and look good.
