American Pride

American Pride
56.5 x 70 inches
Quilt of Valor
I am managing to make a few Quilts of Valor albeit not as many as last year.

The center of American Pride is a printed panel (the stars are at the top and bottom of the panel). I have a lot of the striped yardage and decided to use it for a piano key border, and I am pleased with the look it gives to this quilt.

I have one more of the eagle panels and may make another quilt like this with similar fabrics.
