Redstone Arsenal Going Away Quilt

In 1984 when my husband was in the US Army, we were transfered to Germany.  I had to leave my very special quilting bee given by Lana Lee.  It was difficult for me to leave so many friends.  They gave me this special friendship quilt (the cover) which I worked on for the next 3 years to quilt by hand.  I have so many memories of these fine military wives and I'm reminded of them whenever I look at it.  One block has the name of each quilt block plus the name of the person that made it.  It's in counted cross stitch.  Peggy made extra blocks for this extra large king size quilt and put the entire top together.
