Patriotic Marine Veteran Quilt
I had previously used Liberty & Justice for all by Vicki Lynn Oehlke,
to make two Navy quilts for my cousin's husband and another for a dear friend in Tennessee,
both who had served in the Navy. My neighbor served in the Marine Corps for 20 years,
and I decided I needed to make a veteran quilt for him.
I machine-stitched in the ditch on the stripes of the flag and free-motion quilted around the stars in the flag. I echo-quilted lines every half-inch inside the star. I then quilted rays from the center to the edge in the background to show off the star to make a finished size of 50" X 52", a nice lap-size quilt.
