Patriotic Quilt

Donated this quilt to Piecemakers Guild. 

They are doing a drive to collect quilts for Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes. It is "Connecticut’s first and only community-based transitional home exclusively for homeless female Veterans and their young children. Housed at the Nicholas A. Madaras Home, FS:FH provides ten beds for female Veterans and five beds, when available, for their young children. The PFC Nicholas A. Madaras Home is named in tribute to a young soldier from Wilton, CT."

When I heard about this drive went in hunt of patriotic fabric in my stash. What I found was 17 Heartstring blocks and all the precut strings to make the 31 blocks to make a quilt set 6x8. Perfect! Another UFO now finished and warming someone deserving instead.
