    Does anyone have a source for a pattern for a full or queen size quilt that incorporates the Eagle,Globe, and Anchor? My son is a Marine serving in Iraq and I would like to make one for him while he is away from home. I machine quilt.
    Thanks,
    SuzanneSDY

    I don't know if this will do any good since it isn't a pattern, but I did find this picture of their logo and if you click on the picture, it will give you a larger view. You could possibly print that out, enlarge it, and make a copy for your own use in fabric. Maybe??? :lol: Sorry, I didn't find anything else on my little search. :oops:

    I have seen some military embroidery designs when I was browsing through different embroidery designers websites.

    Have you tried the Marine Corp recruiter? They may have an old poster, or some such around that you could work from,

    WalMart often carries fleece that has full size blantet logo of the various military organizations. My son is full time Army - in Iraq for the second time. I made him a cuddly fleece with the Army logo. I put two pieces together, the front with the logo, and the back a coordinating color. I think I added a border to the logo top to make it a bit bigger. Anyway, Walmart is a good place to check. (if they haven't closed it out. :wink: Sara

    I'm in Kanab Utah. It's 5 miles from the AZ border. Kinda in the middle of nowhere. Close to Zions Ntl Park and Grand Canyon, and 80 miles from the nearest Walmart. Jonathan is in the regular Army in inteligence. He was there in 2002 for a year, and this time for 1 1/2 year, hopefully home in Nov. Sara

    Sara,
    First, a BIG THANK YOU to all our soliders :D

    Second, I know that you asked for a pattern but I found a website that carries more military fabric than I have seen one place before; all branches of service ;)

    Send big hugs to all of our soldiers!! My son is wanting to join the Army and go for ROTC training. I'm trying to decide what type of quilt to make for him also. Don't have much time since he graduates in June. This is a mom in denial!! :D :D Love the fabric for military site that was posted & put it in my favorites.

    As far as the eagle, globe & anchor sometimes you can find large prints of these. Would you consider doing machine or hand applique? I'm sure that an awesome eagle & globe could be paper pieced if you found a picture that you liked you could blow it up to the size you wanted then pencil in the lines to follow.

    Good Luck!!! Lots of Hugs!
