Quilt of Valor
Virginia from my Quilt of Valor group pieced this lovely top. It's 82 x 82. I did custom quilting on it - as it deserves, using a cream thread in the background areas, and a red/white/blue variegated thread in the red and blue areas.
The block is 15" with lots of parts.
There are half-square triangles:
and plain squares
The rest of the quilt has stripes:
I quilted lots of connecting curves and wiggly lines:
There is a 3" plain border in which I quilted squares to carry the checkerboard theme:
The back is plain red, with a piece of patriotic print on one side.
This print was also used for the binding
The red is really much darker - as seen on the side of the photo below
