Charity Quilt For Veteran-In-Need

Our Guild provides charity quilts to veterans, many of whom are wheelchair-bound.  I finally finished this quilt yesterday and hope it provides comfort to someone in need.

It took a lot longer to quilt than I anticipated.  You'd think with just straight-line quilting it would go quickly (at least I did -- LOL!).  Not so.  The stitching lines are about 1/2" wide.  That's a lot of quilting.  But it was good practice and I hope it warms the lap (and the soul) of a wheelchair-bound veteran.  It's the least I can do for those who serve our country with such selflessness.
