Barb's Quilt of Valor
Barb made this Quilt of Valor to give to a retiring co-worker. How nice is that ! There are assorted combinations of stars set on-point, with a great striped fabric as sashings and border. It's 60 x 79.

I quilted a wiggly line through the middle blue stripe, and left the rest as is. I didn't want to take away from that great fabric.
A simple meander was enough for the setting triangles
I alternated 4" and 5" stars in the larger border
The backing fabric has eagles all over. Look closely and you'll see them:
