Quilt of Valor

This will be donated to the Quilt of Valor program, (info here) but especially to a local group that has just returned home.  It is pieced entirely of recycled shirts, including the back.  I saved the backs of the shirts to have large pieces for the backing.  There are a ton of feathers in the quilting.  I also made a presentation case and label for the back.  The case can be used as a pillow case also.  There is a strip of the case fabric across the back to pull it all together.  The organization will fill in the name of the recipient before it's presented.  It's 60 x 76.
