    Great job! I agree that it will probably become a family heirloom.

    That is a wonderful quilt. As a retired Navy Chief, please thank your son for me. What a great way to be thanked for service.

    From one Navy mom to another, super job! My son served on a submarine and I made him a quillow with patriotic pinwheels and pictures from his basic training graduation and family pictures. It had to fold small as submarines are very small and they share their bunk with two fellow sailors. He finished his service in 2009. Have fond memories of our visits to Connecticut.

    It is absolutely Marvelous!... A word I don't ever remember using to describe a quilt before. I think it is such a gift, that no words can do it justice. You have made the bomb! Please thank your son and your family for the service he has given to his country!....
