This big quilt is for sale in my ETSY shop. I need to raise a but of Money for my "Hero Bag and Hero Quilt Cause". Westminster fibers and Amy Butler have donated some wonderful fabric to my little cause in the past, but now I need to restock my batting, thread and needles....You know how it goes. I do put a large portion of every bag and quilt I sell aside, but the sale of this quilt will certainly tide me over for quite some time. It is a lovely quilt, I made it back in 2005 while my husband was defending our freedom in Baghdad. The quilting is lovely and the colors are so patriotic.
I do not charge widows for the bags and quilts I make them and their children. I want to keep it as a gift to assist them as they mourn. I want it to give them comfort...that is my goal. So if you have $400 rattling around in your pocket and this quilt strikes your fancy give it a peek. "Defending Freedom" may be right up your alley.
PS....a note on my post yesterday, I re-read it and man do I sound snotty. I had to run take care of one of the kids and didn't end it well. What I wanted to say was....I have lived in and among so many different people and cultures (German, American, Turkish, Italian, Honduran, Australian, and Mexican) and of all those cultures the Aboriginal is the most ancient and most "unchanged" from it's creation. It is now 2008, and very surprising for me to find myself confronted with such raw aggression. I have never seen anyone intentionally try to hurt and mutilate someone else with their bare hands. Yes, I was a very sheltered and loved child and I was lucky enough to be raised in a culture that nourished my body, mind and soul. Now that I am in my 30's my eyes are opening to others like they never have before. That is that. I should have ended my post yesterday like this.
