It is officially Autumn! And although most of us in Vegas will not be wearing tights and boots or stomping around in mud puddles while it rains, we can bring the season into our home! So Maria will be teaching this Patch Work quilt to do just that on September 27th from 5-9pm. We still have room if you want to join us. If you can not make it, but still love it, there are kits and patterns available. #patchwork

This is the second quilt like this I've made this summer. (Read more and look behind the seams on my blog - link in @sliceofpiquilts' profile.)
I made this quilt for one of the families of the ten sailors who were killed when the US Navy destroyer USS John S. McCain collided with a commercial tanker on August 21st in waters near Singapore. Just two months after seven sailors were killed when the US Navy destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a cargo ship on June 17th in Japanese waters.
The quilts seem so small in comparison to the loss the soon-to-be recipients must be feeling. Praying they will provide some comfort amid the grief.
