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.

red star

I quilted a star in the center of each block, with line dancing in the surrounding areas:

white star

Striped sashing. 

 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:
