Honoring my dad Christmas 2 of 5

For years I've been picking up nautical/ US Navy prints with the intention Of using them in a quilt in memory of my dad to be given to his two grandsons, my son and my nephew.  I chose a mariners compass for the center piece.  On the back with Navy fabric I picked up years ago at the Rosemont Quilt Show I added a fabric label with a dedication to the recipients, and a picture of my dad, and his ship during the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  I have also included the battles he was in, and metals received. The quilts measure 63" by 63"
