      I don't see the problem here. If you want to send some squares do
      so. If not, don't. I think this is a great idea and I commend you
      for your efforts to make our troops feel more comfortable. I am a
      former sailor and I would have been gratefull for a sign of support.
      Thanks to all who offer help from all the soldiers and sailors.

      make a full quilt.

      sign squares. Now if you have old jeans lying around you can simply
      cut a 6inch square and then sign it, putting any kind of
      inspirational note or just a thank you or whatever moves you. You
      need to keep your note inside a 5 inch square in the middle as the
      outer one inch is needed plain so they can be sewn together.........

      offered to have the squares mailed to her. I can give you her
      address off-line.
