Blogging on Thanksgiving morning! I am about to step into 4 hours of joyful work in the kitchen, but my goal was to get the letters finished on the H quilt and pictures up for you to see before I start my cooking marathon.
I am really happy with how these came out. They enhance the vintage quality of this quilt for sure, and properly honor my Uncle Hal.
You can see the quilt needs some serious blocking, but I am sure it will straighten up.
It is highly unlikely that anyone in his entire life called H "Harold"!
The youngest of the 4 Bryant brothers, H was named for his father.
From the time he was 18, H was a Marine first and last. He was with Charlie Company, 1st Battalian/21st Marines/3rd Marine Division, a humble American hero of the battle of Iwo Jima.
Here is an overall view...the writing totally changes the affect of this quilt, does it not?
O.K., it is on to the pies.......Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
