Default USMC Quilt

This grew from a lap throw to a queen size quilt. It is for my BIL who was a DI in the Corps and for all the men and women who serve our Country. It is also made with love for my brother who served in Vietnam and survived that horror.

Great quilt, we can't honor our service members enough. They gave life and limb for our freedoms.
