Quilt of Valor

This top was made by two ladies in Wyoming.
One did the embroidered blocks and the other did the piecing.
 There are 5 awesome embroidered blocks in the center.
The there were 3 flanges inserted into the outer borders.  As the quilting "shrinks" the fabric, the flanges tend to ruffle.  When quilting, I just tape the flanges back with a 12 inch piece of wide blue painter's tape and just move this along as I move the quilt.  I always keep a roll of painter's tape handy in my studio!    
Stars with ribbon streamers fill this area . . . 
  . . . one ribbon continues all the way up the side border.
It always makes my day to have finished another QOV!
