QUILT OF VALOR
Ruthie made this QUILT OF VALOR for a family friend. I love the big heart that the log cabin blocks created. It's 66x72. I've applied the binding for her to stitch down.
The two gold stars are the recipient and his wife. The next smaller stars are their children and their spouses. The smaller stars are the grandchildren and future greats. What a clever idea.
I quilted a simple meander in the background, with an 8-pointed star randomly placed. I outlined each star to make them pop a little more. The same quilting was done in the red and blue areas, with a wiggly line in the border:
8-pointed star in the background
8-pointed star in the red area
meander in background
A red flange was added to help frame the quilt.
The backing is a beige tone-on-tone
