    Navy quilt for my son update

    Here is the layout of my sons' navy quilt. I had an medical emergency last weekend, then got news that following Monday that my uncle was found dead at his home in Illinois. He was killed. Kinda through me for a loop and could not do any quilting all week. So here we go. It glue based and ready for quilting. It has the Ronald Reagan (aircraft carrier), John Paul Jones (guided missile destroyer) and USS Cleveland (amphibious transport dock) all which he served on. I also put some of the places he has toured during his sea duty. The quilt almost cover the top of my King Cal bed. Did not intend to make it this big. What do you think?
