    Navy Quilt for My Son completed

    First off all I would like to thank everyone for their help with putting this together. I have had fun making this, but there are a lot of things I would do different. It was suppose to be a wall hanging; but turned out king size. Hope the pictures come through. I am now making the label and am lost for words. I will name it "From Sea to Shining Sea Tour." The label will read: "To Raymond & April, Thank you for your service to America. Thanks for your courage and dedication." I will have an embroidery eagle on the label. What do you think?

    I think you did an outstanding job! I like how you put all his postings around and the photos are super. I am sure it will have pride of place wherever he travels to next.

    Your quilt look like something I would expect to see hanging in a Naval museum teaching us the history of the navy. I'm trying to say that it is an outstanding tribute to your son. I'm sure the quilt is destined to be a family heirloom. I think you did a fabulous job on it.

    Wow, what a great quilt! No wonder your "wall hanging" grew. I wouldn't change a thing.

    That is the best Navy or any other military quilt I've seen. I think it is a wonderful tribute to your son, and I ,too can see it being past down and treasured by many generations. The label will be perfect; just like the rest of the quilt. Please thank your son for me for his service to our great country.

    I have been watching your progress with this quilt and it turned out amazing! Just use your heart with your label as you did with your quilt and it will be fine. As the mother of a Marine, please thank him and his wife for their many years of service!
