    Ok, so I've made my dad a really simple quilt already (cuz it had to be big enough to cover his feet when he uses it) Now I want to make a quilt of valor quilt for him. He was in the air force before I was around and I want to recognize this in this one :) So without further ado here are the fabrics I have (the last two are on there way, which is why they're seperate. I can't even think of a layout, I'm stuck and would appreciate help. (if you have pictures feel free to post em, Love pictures here!!!) lol

    Thanks everyone I appreciate the help.

    All of em together

    I love the fabrics, I seen this quilt and decided to put it in the quilts I want to make folder, it would definately work for this panel and the fabrics you have.
