My husband will be awarded a Quilts of Valor quilt on Veteran's Day. I made the entire quilt myself & finally finished it today. I bought the panel at the AQS show in Grand Rapids, MI a year ago and it worked out great for this quilt. Here are a couple pics of it:
At first I was just going to quilt diagonal serpentine type lines like I did on my BIL Cameron's Giants quilt, but instead I decided to outline quilt as many of the motifs as I could on the panel and then do diagonal lines in the rest except for the row of sawtooth stars. Those I stippled in the background and the center square in order to make the star points pop. He has snuck a few looks at it and is excited to get if officially awarded to him on the 11th.
