Another Quilt Of Valor

This is the last of a half dozen quilts for wounded warriors that came from Bernina Connection.
I used the flag and star panto, it works well for many of these quilts.
Unfortunately I failed to measure the backing assuming it was large enough-turned out that it was too short so I had to raid my patriotic fabrics to find something suitable to extend the length. I found fabric with red, white and blue hearts on it similar to some of the fabric on the top, and joined that in to make the back large enough.
I plan to drop it off tomorrow at BC and pick up two more!

I love the quilt! Was that a panel or did you applique the center?
I am about to start a quilt of valor type quilt. A friend of mine is going to Afghanistan next week. I am hoping to have the quilt done by the time she gets back in 1 year!
