This weekend, I headed up to Nash Vegas for the Cotton and Steel Workshop at Anna Maria Horner’s Craft South Studio! It was a marvelous weekend meeting fantastic people from Colorado, Ohio, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas and Louisiana! Many thanks to Kim, Melody, Rashida, Alexia and Sarah for teaching us and to Anna Maria Horner and her staff for being such gracious hosts! We learned, talked, shared, laughed and ate SO MUCH!!! It was a total blast! #Cottonandsteelforthewin; #cocktailsforquilters; #newquiltfriends 🙂

I am grateful I had the opportunity to create this quilt out of military uniforms.  My son’s father-in-law, Victor, saved

many of his uniforms from his time at The Citadel. We were able to incorporate his dress pants, dress shirts,

physical training shirts, his hat, his blankets and his athletic letter into the quilt. In keeping with the patriotic theme,

I quilted the top with a meandering star. I believe Victor plans to hang this quilt in his study. I hope this quilt

will be a visual and tactile reminder of Victor’s impressive time at The Citadel.
