Eric's Quilt of Valor

Another injured service member from our area came home this week. Lois pieced this beautiful quilt for him and provided a busy backing, so I wasn't afraid to change thread colors. Carla will be adding the binding and it will be presented to him on Saturday, I believe.

I stitched in the ditch around the main points of these stars and did a lot of meandering.

Some continuous curves, of course.

A border design that I learned from Deloa Jones at Paducah. I've done one border or sashing like this, but she suggested doing a mirror image in next border.

That is gorgeous. What a great gift for someone who has given so much for us.
