    Nice quilt and I'm sure it will keep your son warm. Tell him thank you for his service. My husband and son were both the military so I know what you are feeling right now.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words and prayers. Very proud of him! Will probably read these over and over while he is gone for a year.

    What a beautiful quilt. You've got a huge heart to make this for him to take on his deployment. I know that it will mean a lot to him every time he wraps it around him. Such a beautiful gesture for him to pass his first quilt to a much needier person. My heart and prayers go out to your son and family and to you, too. God bless all that sacrifice their lives away from family and friends to provide a much safer place for everybody here.

    This is really nice. I know he will appreciate the warmth of it while he is gone. Prayers always for all of our men and women who serve us so bravely. From a military mom. I guess someone will be lucky and receive this one too. You are a very special mom.

    Your quilt is beautiful. May God protect him physically, spiritually, and emotionally as he is in harm's way. I pray also, that God would give you peace during the uncertain months ahead. Speaking as the mother of a career soldier who has been deployed six times, I know the struggles you too will face in his absence. My heartfelt thanks to him for his service to our country.

    It is certainly a lovely quilt, but more than that he's taking with him all of your prayers and each stitch so lovingly put into it. I'll pray for his safe return along with all those whose hearts go out to you and you family.

    He will think of you every time he covers up. Bless him on his deployment.

    Your quilt is very pretty and so glad the red did not run! Many prayers for your son, his family and you. I know the fears you have since we also have been through these hard times. Our son retired almost 2 years ago after 20 years in Air Force with 4 deployments to the mid east. We are thankful everyday for his safe return. I pray you son will also return home safely. God Bless you all.

    Like your quilt, thank your son for his service to our country, the quilt is great. My grand son took his jean quilt I'dd made for him several years ago. It's a piece of home they have along with warmth. I also shipped him wool caps,socks, gloves and blankets while he was in Afghanistan. His troop came home this week, not sure if he will have to go back or not, my heart and prayers go out to each of them on foreign soil, God bless be strong..

    VERY nice. Will keep your son in my prayers. I know what you are going thru. My nephew (who is like our son) has been deployed 3 times so far. He was one of the soliders who parachuted into Iraq on day 1. He's been there twice and afghanstain once. HOPE there will be no more deployments for him.
    Yes it is cold in the weather. My nephew asked for a scraf. I started a campaign and asked people to make or buy scarves and send to me or ro any solider deployed. When i heard from him I was so shocked. he said there was so many scraves showing up everyone was wearing them LOL!!
