    I bet your son is so proud of that quilt! As he should be. And I know you are so very proud of him. Please tell him that we all are so proud of him and all of those serving overseas. And at home! Beautiful quilt for a handsome guy!!! Congrats

    the quilt was worth coming home for. Where is your son stationed. My son was in the Navy. He was killed 20yr. ago April aboard the battleship Iowa. God Bless your son,I don't think they consider the quilt Navy Issue. Wouldn't it make quarters a little more brighter,maybe your son could start a new trend LOL.

    I am so sorry to hear of your losing your son on the Iowa. My son is currently stationed in Pensacola Florida, he has some more traing to do in AW. He should finish there and then be sent to his FRAC around May or June. We are praying that he will get to come to San Diego, then he will be only a 3-4 hour drive or so. He is a Rescue Swimmer.

    Well now, he is grinning from ear to ear, so I would have to guess that he is thrilled with it. What did he say?

    Mmmm, there's something so very cosy looking about being wrapped up in a quilt. And when the quilt is as gorgeous as the one you made your son, no wonder he's looking all happy and comfortable.

    Great looking quilt! Congrats on a son in the Navy; I too made a quilt for my stepson when he came home the first time after being away. I did an Around the World in nautical fabrics. Enjoy your time with him home.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    Your quilt is beautiful, and so is your son. You can tell he loves the quilt, too. God bless him throughout his duty.

    I took these pictures about 20 min before posting them. It was a gorgeous day out today.

    Wil wrapped in the quilt. He decided that he did not want to shave while home cause he is tired of shaving every day. He shaved his head the day before coming home as well.
