ARMY Military Memory Quilt- In Progress. Made from Recycled Uniforms, etc.

This Military Memory Quilt is almost done,
I just have to now sew on the almost 200 patches that were given to me to use!!
I used my client's three types of camo on the front,
and on the back I used his t shirts, dress shirt and pants,
and his IRAQ warm up suit!
The batting is a polyester non-woven,
chosen because the weight of the cotton (warm & natural)
would be too heavy with all the uniforms and patches.
This quilt measures 92" X 75",
has 63 squares (of 7" X 9"),
and will have approx 188 patches on it when I'm done.
