    He retired from the Navy, 20 yrs of service, on this past Friday. He finally received the quilt I made and was very emotional when he opened it. He said that he was definitely going to be hanging this one on the wall and gave me a hug for it. I was so proud and it made me feel good that he loved it :)

    That is an awesome quilt. I am so glad he is appreciative of the wonderful quilt. We put a lot of thought into these things along with money and time. But isn't it the best when they are just stunned when they see them

    How did you quilt it. I have one waiting for me, I tried quilt in the ditch but didn't like it and took all the stitches out. Haven't done anything else, it sits there waiting for me to decide.

    I did stippling on it. I put it on my frame with my mid-arm machine. I loved out it turned out.


    Thank you everyone! I love to share pictures of some of my completed quilts. His reaction was true to heart and meaningful to me. We have been friends with him for 19 years and he is part of our family. :thumbup:
