    We are very proud of our Mustang nephew-in-law. Thanks to the Marines he was able to get a college degree after 6 years of enlistment, graduated, went right back in as a Lt. and tomorrow is his promotion ceremony to rank of Major. The first one I will have missed, darn. All of this in 10 years!

    Thanks for the pdf. of Warm Wishes...I've seen a lot of posters refer to it, but never saw the pattern. BTW, I've made a quilt like the one in your avatar...looks hard, but very easy to put together!

    Very nice. You must be very proud of your grandson. Will he be going to San Diego or Parris Island for boot camp. My son is a drill instructor at Parris Island. Good luck to your grandson. Semper Fi.

    Today is his commencement and I will give him the quilt. I can't wait until this afternoon.

    My son is a Marine and I've purchased some Marines fabric and am trying to choose a pattern for a quilt for him. I found a star pattern that I like and think I'll put the EGA panel in the center also.
    Please tell your grands Thank You for serving!

    Where did you get the Marine fabric, what manufacturer if you recall? My nephew-in-law has an English Bulldog, the mascot of the Marines. I would like to make him a quilt for Lou's (the dog) bed.

    Marine fabric was Robert Kaufman and I got it at either Joann or Walmart quite a while ago.
