    This was made for my father in law for his 84th birthday.(2008)
    In the center of stars is a large black button from an official Marine Corp uniform.

    Dad only got to enjoy it for a short while.
    He passed away from cancer in June 2009.

    I am so sorry for your loss, he looked so pleased sitting in front of his quilt. My father did not live to see the one I was making for him, it took me several years to finally finish it and give it to my Mother.

    How wonderful that your dad was able to see it and enjoy it...I started one for my son that I was going to finish when he came back from Iraq...the center medallion is an eagle..I was going to add his awards around it along with stars...it is now sitting in a drawer...I don't have the heart to finish it since he was killed in Iraq....your dad was so blessed that you were able to give him such a wonderful gift of pride and recognition...blessings
