    Sewfine, You did a wonderful job on your sons quilt. Where did you find the Navy fabric? My daughter is an Industrial Hygienist (Safety Officer) and I would love to make her something with it. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Navy Quilt Label

    Just at the end of making the label, I was trying to kill a fly and bent my embroidery foot. I had to attach a small label with my name on it and hand embroidery the date on it. What a bummer. Hope it looks ok. Thanks to all for your wonderful comments.

    Though the embroidery design was a bald eagle with his wings spreaded inside of a star. Someone in my office just told me it is a jalapeno pepper. Oh well, I think of some bright idea as to why a pepper is on the label.

    Thank you. It was given to me a couple of years ago, but hobby lobby carries it. I also seen it on one of the shops on the fabshophop. Can't remember which one.

    I love your quilt! Thanks to your son for his service.

    My dh is retired Navy. I've often thought about making a quilt for my dh and love the way you added photos, names of places he was stationed or visited. Lots of great ideas. Thanks for sharing your delightful and inspiring quilt.
