Kathy's Quilt of Valor

Kathy made this quilt for her Dad.  It's a great QOV pattern with lots of patriotic fabrics.  I  like the way the stars are off set.   She plans on binding it with the red fabric.  It's 74 x 88.

I quilted 8-pointed stars in the 3-stripe sashings:

and again in the blue stars:

There is a meander in the background:

I quilted tilted diamonds in the border:

and made them meet in the middle to form a point:

The backing is another great patriotic fabric:

Around the Horn

My husband watches the sports talk TV show called "Around the Horn" faithfully.  He suggested one day that I make him a quilt to go with the show.  So this is what I came up with.  It's 60 x 53.

The colored flying geese are the same as what are in the original logo.  I was able to create the logo in my embroidery software:

I quilted a swirl and circle mix in the background areas:

and a hook and line dancing in the colored triangles:

The backing is a red/black print with some extra flying geese down the middle:
