Here is a entry to the Christmas Quilt Show, which I received via email from a non-blogger, Tink Bruning Linhard.
Tink shared this information about this very special quilt:
This certainly isn’t a big spectacular Christmas quilt, but it’s a wall hanging that we made for our son, Jon, while he was serving with the USMC 1st Bn 3rd Reg in Iraq for Operation Phantom Fury and Operation Iraqi Freedom, October 2004 – February 2005.
Advent in the Desert. Original Wallhanging created for our son while he was serving with the USMC in Falluja in Fall/Winter 2004. Dick filled each daily pocket with a note. To our surprise, Jon carried this with him and brought it home. Its been washed once and we can not get the sand out of it.
SewCalGal is truly honored to have this special quilt in this show. My heart feels warm and my eyes have tears in them, just knowing how special this quilt is. Special thanks to Jon for serving and to Tink for sharing this heartwarming quilt, and her insights on it, with all of us.
