    Wow, a wonderful quilt to welcome him home. Your fabric choices and placement really worked. How could his thoughts not wander to peaceful forests as he looks on that quilt, rather than his last tour of duty?

    Very nice quilt. My father was in the Construction Batallion in the Aleutian Islands during WWII. That's a great way to honor our service men and women.

    It really looks good after it was quilted. I bound it with the yellow plaid. Take my word for it, matching plaid for binding is hard; however, it looked gorgeous. I managed to get the thin brown stripe on the front of the quilt binding. When I got to the end of the binding strips to join them, I only missed having a perfect match all around by less than 1/4". What can I say, I'm a Virgo and sometimes I do these silly things.

    Yes, very manly. Tranquil too, which is something I'm sure he needs.
