Default My reproduction of the Navy Achievement Medal in fabric

Hi all, I am working on a quilt for a Marine and wanted to include the award he received. Here is a photo of the actual award and of my fabric reproduction of it for the quilt. I'm so pleased with how it came out. Just had to show you!

He will be so pleased with this. He probably won't brag or talk about the award (most Marines I know don't) but I'm sure he will show off his quilt to everyone.


Thanks for taking the time to honor him in this way.

You did a wonderful reproduction! As the mother of a Marine I agree with Aunt Janey. He's going to love it!
