Quilt of Valor
This is another one of mine made from recycled men's cotton shirts. I love the look of all the plaids and stripes. There are even two shirts that were my husband's. Finished sized is 60 x 72. This will hang in our quilt show in April, then be donated to a veteran through the Quilts of Valor Foundation.
This quilt was presented to Richard Stutz - a WWII veteran - in June 2016.
I used the back of the shirts for the backing of the quilt:
I used a red/white/blue variegated thread and quilted stars, hooks, and line dancing:
star and line dancing in the large white stars
4 hooks and line dancing in the larger squares
one hook and line dancing in the half-snowball blocks
stars spaced all around in the white/cream border
