    Great quilt! He will treasure that. I really like the way you made it scrappy, but each star is made from a single fabric. Very nice.

    Double YEAH!!! I am so glad he doesn't have to go. My son is going to be coming home from his last tour of duty in just over a month then he will retire 6 months later from the Air Force. He was lucky this time and went to Djibouti, Africa (happy me). Your quilt is beautiful and I know your nephew will love it. Please tell him we all appreciate him protecting us. God Bless him and all his family.
