My sister just made this quilt for her beloved Josh, a friend who's in Iraq now. It's her very first quilt, and I think it's beautiful. She agreed to have it posted here. Comments and advise are appreciated.

He is so lucky, the quilt is gorgeous!  My brother is in Baghdad, and I've heard many times how appreciative they are of every thing sent.  Your sister's Josh will have many jealous friends over there.

Great job...I love the colors. The name on it is beautiful too. Prayers said for his safe return, and for all of our soldiers.
