Here is the Petty Officer’s quilt, ready to pack up and send out as soon his ship deploys and I have an address. Apart from the quilting hideousness, it’s been enjoyable and satisfying to produce something that’s needed and will give someone who does a hard job a bit of comfort and appreciation. I’ve enjoyed the fun bits, and am especially proud of that signal flag strip on the back. I’d like to incorporate that into other Navy quilts, but another time it’ll either be larger, or printed on a strip of white fabric. Piecing those tiny squares was just too time consuming and fiddly (not to mention pretty wonky!).
A few detail shots… I have my next assignment. Only a laundry bag this time, but it’s going to be fun because of the requested design features.
