These 15 quilts were all made by me and donated to a group of WWII Veterans from the Toledo, Ohio area who made the Honor Flight in September, 2011. Each quilt measures 36" x 48" and no two are alike.
It was an honor and privelge to make these quilts in memory of my dad, Francis J. Schwab.

The Star and Stripes, they flew forever
always in his heart.
He was loyal to his nation
and bravely did his part.
Always thinking of his brother
ever in his mind,
He stood for love of country
and most of all mankind.
Now gazing down with his Master
through a light and heavenly cloud,
He's still looking out for all of us
of whom he is so proud.
I love and miss you Dad!
Here are the quilts!
