Marine Corps Quilt of Valor
Susan in Michigan made this Marine Corps Quilt of Valor. It has a Marine Corps insignia in the center, with lots of borders. It's approx 60 x 60.
I outlined the center design, put a star in each corner,
and wiggly lines in the small borders around the insignia
I quilted an 8-pointed star in the center of the red stars,
with line dancing in the white surrounding them
Wiggly lines in the first border
8-pointed stars in the different sections of the second border
The outer border has a piano key effect
The backing is black like the outer border although the color is bad here. It shows all the different quilting patterns and has a "whole cloth" look to it. I can't re-take these pictures as the quilt is already on it's way to Susan for finishing.
