Earlier this year, Celia Gayle Gwaltney promised to send me a bandana like they send to men in service. I got it this week. Immediately, I wanted to design a quilt with it as a center focus.
CODY'S QUILT PART 2: PIECING
CODY'S QUILT PART 3: QUILTING
Hoped for Cody's input but that was not feasible. Finally decided to just stitch the pledge in gold thread around the outer black border.
Aug 27: Received the bandana. Stopped by the quilt shop but it was closed.
Aug 28: Early in the morning I did the first design. When I got up, I did the second design.
Aug 31: in town anyway so stopped by the local quilt shop again. Immediately found some fabrics that I though would be perfect. Bought a yard of several of them including black Very close but off just a bit. Personally I like the solids better than the prints I picked up.
Sept 01: Going back to the quilt shop with the bandana this time.
Sept 07: I hoped to have interest from others who visit this site but none was shown so that idea is off the table. I will proceed to make this one & let Celia give it to the wounded warrior in her community-Cody Stanton. Really looking forward to it this once.
Sept 21: Decided to proceed with the "R&R" (Round & Round) version. Figured out how much fabric I need. Something isn't right with my plan...hmmmm.
Sept 22: Found the error in my plans so I am all set to proceed with cutting.
HA! Now I know how long my strips need to be. Used Excel as graph paper.

I love the fabric choices and the whole idea of this quilt. It's a wonderful project.

WOW! Thanks, Terrie. It is growing on me. I was a real skeptic at first but decided to take the challenge to go brighter.
