Quilt of Valor

My guild has a great Quilt of Valor group that meets monthly to work on Quilts of Valor.  This is one I made using lots of scraps from my stash.  It's 62 x 70.

All of the blue squares have stars in them

The red sashings have many different fabrics.  Some have stars and others don't.  The white stars are the only constant fabric.  They are all the same - also full of stars.

I used a red/white/blue variegated thread to quilt a pantograph that has flags and stars.  The is a large flag with one star in the corner, then other stars between the flags.

There is an extra row of sashings around the outside to create a border, 
and to finish the stars on the outside

The backing is a red tone on tone, with a blue binding to finish
