Marine Comfort Quilt




Aunt Kath sent me the squares, backing and batting to put together this quilt for Chad Edmondson's family. Sadly, Chad, who was only 20 years old, was killed on May 27th in Iraq. I hope this quilt gives his loved ones a little peace. There were some really nice messages written on the quilt squares from different families around the country. Working on this quilt this past weekend really put our flooded basement into perspective......so we got some water.....big whoop. There are so many other terrible things going on in our world yet I am so incredibly blessed by all I have. Please keep Chad's family in your prayers as they must be suffering horribly.
