Quilt of Valor
I made this jelly race quilt and added some stars to the areas that end up with several rows of the same color, and also in the corners. I had some extra gold fabric that has stars in it, so I used that between each jelly roll strip just to add some more color. It measures 65 x 72. I made a presentation case to match made from the gold fabric. It has a red accent strip, and 2 red stars on each side of the top blue band. I forgot to take a picture of it. The quilt and case will be presented to a veteran.
I wrote patriotic words across each row, with a star to separate them:
Gold squares between strips:
I did a simple meander in the borders:
The backing is a bright gold with stars:
