My friend Ruthie made this Quilt of Valor for a friend.  She added the box around the center star to highlight it.  It has a purple heart in it since the veteran to receive it earned a Purple Heart.  It's
65 x 78.  I've added the binding and she will do the hand-stitching.  It's the same fabric as the backing.

Purple Heart

I did simple wiggly lines in all of the stripes to simulate a flag waving

I quilted a star in the center of the blue stars, and connecting curves around the points of the star

The quilting shows up well on the back

She added a gold flange on the sides to separate the blue border from the blue stripes

here is a photo of the recipient - a good friend of the piecer;
