Sylvia made this Quilt of Valor to give to a family friend Memorial weekend. It is 40 x 60, and has a central section of blue with flags, then lots of borders around it.
I quilted a meander and stars in the 3 outer borders, and in the center blue section:
I put a pointed meander in the white border, and the central red border:
There is a wavy line in the narrow blue borders, and a small wiggly line across the white sections of the striped border:
The 3-colored border with stars around the center section is all one fabric. I quilted loops there:
The back is a dark red with gold stars:

Kathy ran this quilt as a mystery for her guild. It's the same one I ran for my guild last summer. (here) It's 56 x 80. She used all beautiful batik fabrics.
I quilted flower petals through the white diagonal squares
and the same in the squares in the central square. All of the triangles got a figure 8:
I put curved hooks in the black border:
The backing is a fabulous batik that picks up all the colors from the front:

Karen was working on this at our guild retreat last fall. It's paper pieced and I enjoyed watching her work through the process. Lots of patience there :) The colors are fabulous and all the fabrics work perfectly together. It's 60 x 60. I used 17 different threads . . .
I quilted pebbles behind the spikes in the cheddar sections and also in the bright yellow spots to help those spikes stand out:
The central star got line dancing with loops in the middle of each side of the diamonds:
I love the multi-colored fabric that borders the star and pulls all the colors together. I used a variegated thread that has all those colors in it, and just followed the waviness of the fabric:
I put reversed "C's" in the black border:
I used wavy lines on the seam lines and in the middle of each cheddar border piece. I can't believe all the different cheddar fabrics that are in there . .
The back is a black/white paisley print:
