My friend Ruthie pieced this top to give to a friend.
She always does a great job and I enjoy quilting her tops.
This is the second time she has made this top. It's 63 x 79
I quilted 8-pointed star in each star center
There are simple wiggly lines in all of the white areas to simulate the flag waving
The same lines are done with matching thread in the red and blue areas,
although it's not really visible here
the backing is a great flag pattern

This was a top I received through a pairing with the national organization (www.qovf.org)
It's a scrappy 9-patch, alternating red and blue blocks, all with a gold square in the center.
This quilt is 60 x 74
I alternated 2 quilting patterns throughout each individual square. It's either and 8-pointed star, or hooks and connecting curves
In the border, I did a simple piano key:
this fabric has patriotic words throughout.
The backing is a simple gold tone on tone.
