Quilt of Valor

This is another one sent to me by the national organization.  They pair me up with local groups that piece the top.  This one was a group effort by several people.  It's large - 72 x 90.  I used a red/white/blue variegated thread throughout the blocks and inner border.

There are several different blocks.  People made their favorite 9" block, then they were all put together and borders added.

I put a zig zag line in the narrow white border, with another line going out to the corner

there is a simple meander with navy thread in the dark outer border.  
Nothing fancy would show, so I kept it simple here

the backing is a great patriotic print:
