    Thank you for the service of your family members!!

    My daughter just returned on Wednesday from a year's tour in Iraq.
    Thank your daughter and give her a big hug from all of us.

    What a wonderful quilt! I love it.

    The fabrics you have chosen are just perfect, and I wish we had some Army fabric here in England like that!

    Please give my love, a hug and total respect to your Hero Son from the Mum of a British Soldier Serving in Afghanistan. xxx

    This is quite a popular pattern in our family. We received one from a friend when my MIL passed away 2 years ago. Each of my boys' first toddler blankets was a Stairway to Heaven done in triangles instead of squares. Then my hubby has one from the same gal who made the boys' and his is decades old. I didn't even know there was a cat one until I started looking for the pattern. I got a tip from a friend about bargello style quilts and I just measured cut and made it because I knew what my finished product is. I may be wrong, but I believe the regular Stairway to Heaven is public domain. The only one with a copyright I've ever seen is the cat one.



    I'm really glad you all liked it! I don't think Steven knew what to think of it at first, I think it had to grow on him. But he ended up sleeping under it and guarding it from his brothers before he took it with him back to TX. He's only been back since September and already they are sending him somewhere again. I found a new pattern for his quilt when he gets home from whereever he's going. I have a tiny picture of him holding it. When I find my memory card, I'll post it.
