Honor Flight Quilt

Twice a year Honor Flight Northern Colorado sends 120 Veterans to Washington DC - and when they return, they are honored even more with a Quilt of Valor/Honor Flight Quilt.

Gypsy Quilter  - who blogs at Gypsy Quilter Designs  sent me some amazing tops to use for this event.. This is one of her tops - all quilted up!

I used a Baptist Fan on it:

Isn't that a fun quilt?

I used a red stars on the back ( which of course I forgot to photograph)
and will include red binding - and off to the binders it will go!!

Thanks Gypsy Quilter ( and Dolly!!!)

You're quite welcome. It's always an honor to participate in such a noteworthy event. Love the idea of red binding!

What a sweet quilt. Honor Flight is an amazing program. I am sure receiving a quilt makes their trip even more memorable. My husband and I went on a bus trip with veterans to DC. It was a trip of a life time that neither one of us will forget. Thank you for all you do for all veterans.

That's a wonderful scrappy quilt and must be so fun to look at all the fabrics up close! Way to go Gypsy Quilter! Red binding, red backing and your baptist fans all finish it up beautifully Alycia!
