    Quilt made to honor my daughter's AF service

    I admired a quilt LynnVT made and she offered me an AF panel for my daughter's quilt. It is finished. I got out my graph paper and designed this. The Ohio Stars are 18 " blocks.

    That is beautiful and a great way to thank her for her service. She will cherish it for many, many years. I would like to thank her for service. I have a couple of panels left from when I made my son a navy quilt. Just last week I was trying to figure out how to make a quilt with the panel as the center focus point. Thanks for sharing.

    My son is in the airforce. I used the center panel in pillows for him. I like your quilt better.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Originally being from Ohio I love the Ohio Star pattern. Thank you daughter for her service in protecting our freedoms. My youngest son retired from the Air Force 8 months ago and we are all so very proud of him too.
