Quilt of Valor

This quilt was pieced by Vicki G, and sent to me for quilting. We were paired through the Quilts of Valor organization.  The name of the pattern is:

"Non Sibi Sed Patriae" ,(not for self but for country), from Fons & Porter.    This is inscribed on the chapel doors of the US naval academy.

I quilted four 8-pointed stars in the blue field, with straight lines in the stripes - staying with the "stars & stripes" theme.  The backing is red with small gold stars.  Vicki has added the binding, and will send it to the selected veteran.
