I made this quilt for my nephew when his mother mentioned the one I had made for him previously was getting quite worn. This time I chose to make him a patriotic quilt. I began with the 8-pointed star which was left over from some long forgotten project and used it as the center of the medallion.
The quilt was sort of a personal “round-robin” as I added sections. The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. I finished it in October 2003. It is 77 in X 79 in.
As we begin Memorial Day weekend, I want to thank all active and retired military, as well as their families, for the service and sacrifices they have made and make for us all.
