    After seeing another post about a blue star banner I thought I would share with you guys a quilt that I made about 7 years ago before I was into quilting!!

    It was originally made for my first born son to put on his bed. After completing it I decided it was too white for a little boys bed and has been hung on the quilt shelf ever since. Not always in the same house as we have moved 4 times since I made it. Home is where the Marine Corps sends us.

    Now that I am really getting into quilting this will be my summer display quilt and whenever my husband is deployed as he is now.

    That's a really nice quilt. I agree that it's too white for a little boy's bed and actually think it looks really nice on the wall. I'm sure you smile when you see it because it reminds you of your hubby. :)

    Very nice. I love the idea that you "fly" it when your DH is deployed. Did you applique the stars on or how where they done? I've started to look into doing a patriotic quilt.
