For the 77 National Guard Quilts I need, they must be adult sized, they cannot be for a baby or a lap sized quilt. They have to be able to cover an adult laying down.
I would prefer colors and fabric patterns in something that either a male or female could use so look for unisex patterns such as bold plaids, stripes, abstract prints, circles, etc..
If you have a husband or son, think what they would like or better yet, take them fabric shopping with you, you might be amazed at how great their eyes are.
Make it fun, make it with love and remember it is for the men and women who protect us during horrible devastation without asking for a thanks!
