Postcards from Jack

This quilt is composed of postcards sent by Jack as he climbed the ever growing bean stock. It was born out of the need to complete this quilt while on deployment to Afghanistan on a 3in Mini-sewing machine.  Inspiration for the bean stock came from a shedding tree seen on training in CA.
