Quilt of Valor
Sharon in Ohio pieced this beautiful top as a Quilt of Valor. I love the pattern. It has been sent back to her for binding and presentation to a veteran.
I did a meander in the blue and cream areas, and added 8-pointed stars in the star centers:
The corners have stars also:
The flying geese are 3-D, so the white stitching is basting stitches to hold them down while I quilted. Sharon will pull them out before this is presented.
I did loops in the brown border, and a meander in the larger flag border:
My favorite part is the feather in the red "stripes"
The backing is red, white and blue stars on navy:
The cream stitching in the stars makes a neat pattern on the back:
Edit - Sharon just sent me these pictures of her presenting the quilt to her brother, and the label she attached. Thanks Sharon for including my Dad.
