    After my husband left for Iraq for the second time I decided to use some of those old uniforms laying around to make him a quilt. He is now using it in Iraq.

    That looks great, BG, you did a really good job on it. And I bet your husband is really glad to have something so special from home with him.

    And welcome to the QB! :)

    the first time my husband was in Iraq I had gotten a request from another soldier for a quilt that looked like a flag, This is what I came up with.

    Hi and Welcome from Northern Indiana !
    Love the way you did the quilt and what a clever way to reuse his unused uniforms :lol: And no one cam claim it from him unless they have the same last name :wink:

    It is small so I couldn't see clearly, who is in the pic , if you don't mind my asking ?

    That is really thoughtful of you and such a good use of old uniforms.

    I like it!!! Welcome to the board from Southern California. Thank you for your husband's (and your) service to our country. My daughter just returned from a year in Iraq a month ago. She's Army reserve. When she was in Afghanistan in 06 I sent her a lap quilt. she took it with her to Iraq tooand used it on her bed.

    Very nice design and using the uniforms was a great idea. Lots of love, in every stitch. Stay strong in his absence and for him I wish a safe return. Thanks for sharing such a meaningful piece of work.

    Your quilt is wonderful! Every quilt made with love is special - but
    yours is extra special. It's like wrapping your arms around him.

    Thank you.
