    A navy service tribute quilt

    This quilt is a gift for a brother who served on the USS BENNINGTON during the Vietnam era.

    It has rope & cable work in the sashing & borders, the panels have some very nice work that

    show up poorly in the pictures due to thread/fabric color combinations, at the bottom of each

    of the three panels is a 4" frame of rope for 3 service patch's that she wishes the attach to the quilt.

    This quilt is very nice and is a fine tribute to hert brother's service.

    I hope you enjoy the pictures and hopefully they will provide you with some ideas/inspiration

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
