When providing an answer, please don't just say read the instructions or watch the video. Tell people what document and what page or what video to view. If it's a quick answer, say "this is the answer and it can be found here." so they're able to read it for themselves and help others in the future.

In honor of Devin

Back in 2013 when Heather was in 5th grade, she had a friend Makayla. Makayla has a big brother, Devin, who was serving in Afghanistan at the time. The day came when Makayla's family heard that Devin had been injured while serving. There was a period of time when we didn't know how or where Devin was. It turns out he had been standing next to a car when a bomb in the car exploded. I'm very happy to report that Devin lived to tell his tale. 

Also in 2013, Island Batik asked me if I'd like to make a quilt for the Quilted in Honor program. This quilt was made with Devin in mind - hence Star of Devin
