    I have been sewing all my life, learned at my mother's knee. However, I am a total novice at quilting. I have been working on few projects lately and the first one I've completed is a little wallhanging for my daughters first deployment. I took the background from another pattern named "American Sue" (using Sunbonnet Sue) but had to create my own sailor as I couldn't find one anywhere. Not knowing how she will hang it over her bunk on the ship I added loops and magnets. Also, The back fabric is printed with the Pledge of Allegiance. I hope you like it!

    Thanks everyone. She's been away from home for over a year now but this is the first time she will be away at sea for 6 to 9 months. No more phone calls and text messages every day or so. It's going to be tough on mom, but I'm sure she'll be just fine.

    It is beautiful! The lovely quilt will be a reminder for your daughter of just how much she means to you. My prayers that she is safe in her service of our country.
