    I'm not sure how copyright works here....so I want to get this out of the way first. I'm pretty sure that Stairway To Heaven is a public domain pattern as it's been around forever. I used a simple cross hatch, but it only went one direction. I did use Borders Made Easy. It's a cheater paper you put on borders so you can quilt cool lines on it. I loved it and if I can use it, anybody can. It did make my borders easy. I hope that gives all the credit due. Now, for the pics.

    Here is the top:

    And the backing:

    The Top with the back:

    [IMG]http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z...1252296213.jpg[/IMG]

    Close up of the top corner. You can see the quilt lines and the border paper:

    [IMG]http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z...1252296210.jpg[/IMG]

    Border Paper so you can see the design:

    [IMG]http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z...1252296205.jpg[/IMG]

    Border already sewn on the bottom:

    All that's left is the delivery pictures, we'll have to wait until he gets here for that!!

    Great project! I'm sure it will be really appreciated. And thanks for the recommendation for the borders. I've never used them.

    Looks great. I have collected Army fabrics for my daughter too. Just havn't made anything with them yet. I also have Navy fabrics and military aircraft for my son and husband that I have not done anything with yet.

    Thank you for the service of your family members!!

    My daughter just returned on Wednesday from a year's tour in Iraq.

    You raised an American hero. We pray for our troops daily and we are so thankful for his service. The quilt you made for him is just awesome! The quilting is beautiful too...KUDOS to you both! Love and God bless from Alaska!
