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:

and checkerboard

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
