    Terrific quilt for him! A wonderful gift of love. Please thank him for his service. May the Lord watch over them all, and bring them safely home.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Great quilt, I know you son will think of you and the love you put into every stitch, each time he uses it. Please give him a huge hug and a BIG THANKS from me for his and his family's service to our country. I don't know if many of our service personnel and their families realize just how many prayers go up for them daily and how grateful so many of us are, for their love of this country and fellowman. I know that I personally give thanks and ask God to protect them and their families in all of my prayers. Praying he won't be gone too long and can soon return to his loved ones. Thanks for sharing your work.

    God bless your son and all our troops

Once he got his final orders, many tears, the quilt is ready for him to take. When he was there last time he said it was pretty cold in the winter. The quilt I made him then went to the Afghan soldier he was training. Asking for prayers for our son, wife Christy, son Gavin (5) and daughter Julia (3) and all the soldiers (their families) serving.
    Usually wash my fabrics before the quilt is made but these are from several charm packs. Was really scared of the red but it didn't bleed at all. There was nothing on the color catchers, so surprised. Good quality fabrics from MSQC.

    My prayer is for the safety of Andy, the peace of mind of Christy, Gavin and Julia and all the soldiers (& their families) & the people the soldiers are trying to help in Afghanistan. I pray that God will hold all of them and bring Andy back to the joy of his family. Your quilt will be a great comfort to him. And how well you raised him to be able to share the gift his mother gave him with another mother's son. That's a testimony to you.

    I will pray for a safe return for your son as well as those left behind. My DH was in Viet Nam for a year and it was difficult for me, I can't imagine what your DIL will be going through with 2 small children. God bless her and her children as well. Please thank your son for his service for his country.

    Beautiful quilt. Will pray for your son. My son also was there. He has been in the service for 20 years now.
    Scheduled to be deployed out somewhere again in October.
    Your son will have many hugs and wrapped in love with this quilt. Bless you too.

    I was an Army wife for 20 years and went through Desert Storm and am praying for your son, his family and his folks too. It is a stressful time and trust God will bring him back safely.

    I know how you feel, my son retired from the Marines after twenty years 07/11/2007. He also served in Afghanistan while in the Marines and now working for the State Dept. Please tell your son I thank him for his service.

    What a wonderful! I made our son a Navy quilt when he was deployed. He was in for 5 years as a Master At Arms (MP - Navy style). Found out after he returned that while he was based in Bahrain, he was actually sent to Iraq. He came back safely.

    Thank them all for their service.

    Many, many thoughts and prayers for you, Andy, and the rest of your and Andy's family. A beautiful quilt from a loving mother. I have a grandson who became a Marine on May 23. We are waiting on word on where he will be stationed at the end of this month. I pray daily for his safety and that of all our military families, I will be adding Andy and his family along with you to my prayers.

    Oh, it is very pretty. I will keep your son and his family in my prayers. They are all very deserving of all our prayers and anything else one can do for them.
