Major Cathy Ott, Retired, made a very special quilt to honor military service. She made it for her daughter’s boyfriend, who is a specialist in the United States Army Reserve. The quilt is composed of four different uniforms that Cathy wore in the military, including one from Vietnam. She incorporated several batiks in brown and black to enhance the colors in the uniform fabric.
