Quilt of Valor 

Brock is currently serving in the US Army. To honor him, I made him a Quilt of Valor.  The pattern is from Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine, called Album and Star.  The star block is appliqued, and the pieced block is called an Album block.  Both blocks are set on point and are about 12" from point to point.  The quilt measures about 60" x 70".  The border is a set of 3 fabrics (red, white, blue)  about 1 1/2" each, sewn together then added as a single unit.  I even mitered the corners!  I use a tan variegated thread for the quilting and did stars and loops throughout though slightly different in the 2 blocks and the border.
