As per tradition at Christmas, we draw names for giving gifts. This past Christmas, I drew Ethan's name, my sister's boyfriend. I was at a bit of a loss, for quite some time. It wasn't until I got the idea of a quilt, that my panic started to subside. I had already made t-shirt quilts for my sister, brother, husband and myself. Why not see if Ethan wants one too?
I got the best surprise when asking if he wanted one. He did and had been saving his old military uniforms for just that reason. YES! I told them to send me the uniforms and I would see what I could come up with. It turned out better than I hoped for!
This has been my favorite quilt to make so far. Thank you Ethan, for serving our country and keeping us safe!
And thank you to all the service members and their families for sacrificing so much to ensure our freedoms!
God Bless America!
