    He looks happy to be home. I am doing the same quilt but with black background and jewel tone fabrics.

    Aw, that smile says it all. Beautiful family!! Beautiful quilt. I do hope your son is home and safe! (As this is an older post.) Congrats on being featured. I just love the blues and greens you used.

    Thank you everyone. He deployed last year. Got home in December. During his deployment they lost one of the helicopters and 2 pilots. He was in a small detachment with 2 helo's and 5 pilots and 5 crew. One bird went into the Red Sea and the pilots were killed. The 2 crew members on the bird were injured but survived. He flew with these guys daily and was really close to them. It was very hard. The one year anniversary was in September.
    My son is doing well. He is not scheduled to deploy again in the near future. He does have his quilt on his bed in his apartment in San Diego.


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    He sure is pleased with that quilt, you can see it on his face. He looks like a very nice man, thumbs up to his looking after the country.
    God Bless you all.

    beautiful quilt, I love the jewel colors. great border treatment.
    this is on my bucket list. maybe in scraps
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
