Humility

Humility
Quilt of Valor
68 x 80 inches
My goal of 64 Quilts of Valor was met last week when I completed this top, made with a kit I picked up at the Quilt of Valor sew-in in March.

I had to supplement the kit as the fabric needed for the small star tips was missing. Luckily, I had some tone on tone beige that worked with the other fabrics.

Assembling the quilt, I was disappointed that the center star's fabric was so subtle and that the star seems to lose some of its dominance. Yet it was the subtle nature of the star that lead to this quilt's name - Humility. Many veterans that I know are humble and do not like to draw attention to their service, so in a way, the star's lack of dominance represents those unassuming heroes.
