Veterans & Strings

Back in August, I set a goal for myself to make quilts for the Veterans who attend our local Seniors Center. Below are three of nine that I made, quilted and presented to the Vets. They were very pleased to receive each a quilt.
Here's a link to the rest of the story.  LINK
 
 This one is a simple fractured diamond star design and I added the white stars to make things interesting.
 This is also fractured diamond star but I left out one portion of each diamond star to frame an eagle in the center.
This last one was made from strips of fabric I had left over from some other project and the bargello bottom was also from a previous project.

Very pretty and honorable quilts. The veterans are so deserving.

You brought me to tears because you did these beautiful quilts for veterans. I married one and gave birth to two more, and my brother was a career officer who gave his life. Thank you.
