Quilt of Valor

I finally finished my "Quilt of Valor" from the hop that Marjorie did.

I gave this to my Navy son.

I chose this pattern so I could practice my FMQ

 but my son came home the other day and said he needed a smaller blanket for his bed.

So I debated on whether to just meander this quilt or put it aside (for a longer period of time) until I could get to it and do some pretty stitches.

As you can see......the boy's need took over my desire to save it for a time I could quilt the dog out of it.
 
Was a nice Saturday project.....
 
even tho...once again
 
 I am doing the things I don't need to be doing
 
and
putting off the things I should be doing....
 
 
Oh well....Tomorrow is another day!

That is what I always say. My grandson was visiting and he decided he needed another blanket so I let him pick out the fabric, build the design on the design wall and decided on the decorative stitches in the blocks. I was not planning on putting out a quilt in 24 hour.

I do love stars and this pattern is fabulous! What's the name of the pattern? Is it your creation? You do amaze me with what you can design and do. Hope all is well with you and the boys.
