Stars and Stripes

Stars and Stripes
Quilt of Valor
57 x 69
Last week, Marilyn and I had another Sisters' Sewing Retreat. I prepped the fabric for this top and another one before traveling to Denver.

The flags in Stars and Stripes and the large panel used to make Allegiance were purchased at a Kansas quilt shop last summer. I haven't seen the panels in any other fabric shop, before or since last summer's trip.

The flags were fussy-cut from the panel and then framed, the star within a star blocks were made with stash fabric, and the piano key border was made with Mary's donated fabric.

Pattern:  American Dreams (Pieced A) - free online pattern

Stars and Stripes is Quilt of Valor #98

  5. I read all of your posts because they come as emails to me... but replying on a cell phone is just a little tricky to me. Just a short explanation of why I reply to lots of posts at the same time. (hum, must try to get computer out more often!) This quilt is great. I love the flags in amongst the stars. Do you send these to Alysia? Or keep them local?
