Quilt of Valor

I made this disappearing 9-patch while spending 6 nights in a motel.  :)  I had the 5" charms all cut, then pieced them, cut them, and re-pieced them in the motel.  Got it all done except for the borders.  I used a blue fabric with gold stars for the backing.  I quilted stars in the red and blue squares, white squiggly lines in the white sections.  The first border has a diagonal zig zag, and I put lots of little swirls in the blue border.  It's 64x78, has a matching presentation case, and embroidered label.
