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:
