My friend who gave me creative license with her family heirloom vintage quilt has a son who is in the Marines. He is newly married [just shy of two years] and will be off on his first foreign assignment after Thanksgiving. His precious bride will be able to accompany him and the thought of them together on one of the biggest adventures of their lives was the inspiration for this project.
This project uses a smaller piece of the patchwork simply top stitched onto a square of painter’s drop cloth. The prose that I machine-stitched embodies this young, devoted wife’s ideal as she follows her husband to the ends of the earth.

It serves as a piece of history for them as they make their own history.
I am so very thankful for our military members and their families. They give so much of themselves. I pray that God blesses each and every one and carries them safely through their journeys.
