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.
