Default Military Uniform Quilt

FINALLY done! I had the squares ready for months but had to wait on the emboridery one. It took me 7 hours today to quilt, square and bind...that include lunch and running to pick out the binding. Hubby picked it out, it is red with gold stars. I didn't measure it before I put it in the wash, but at the last measurement, it was 85" x 100"! And it is HEAVY! It feels like at least 15lbs...at least my body feels like it after all the quilting on it today. But hubby is happy so I am happy. But NEVER AGAIN....lol.

Good luck! lol I am glad I did it for him, as he is the one that asked for it after I started sewing in November. It has taken me this long to get it all together but it is done!

Thanks. I think he is proud of it and I am too. BTW, I dubbed it Mammoth. Lol.

What a great use for his uniforms! I can't imagine how wonderful he must feel to be the proud owner of this keepsake. Thank him for his service and thank you for sharing.

Thank you both for your service to our wonderful country. (Navy vet 1981 - 1999)
I like the use of pockets and patches..
