I had lots of leftover fabric from other patriotic quilts I had made as well as all these red and white half square triangles. So I started making stars and this is the quilt I ended up with. I really liked how it turned out and knew I wanted it to go to someone I knew. My dear friend Helen's husband is a retired Marine and I felt this quilt would be perfect for him and I was right, he was overwhelmed.

I have been on a mission to use up my scraps. Have made one blue and white, one red and white and One using left over juvenile fabrics. Now I am on to my purple. OK, let me explain. I made a purple quilt for my granddaughter 8 years ago and I inherited a bunch of purple. I got it all cut out and was STILL left with a pile. What to do, what to do. Ah Ha, a pieced back. Used up every bit to that purple and I like it.
