FREE PATTERN: STARS OF HONOR from Debbie Mumm (repost) Posted on 1 Sep 00:39 , 31 comments

 (a repost of a old favorite of mine and a cause near and dear to my heart)

How can any one resist a quilt with stars! This one is a perfect way to celebrate and to say "thank you" to our armed forces service members in appreciation of all their sacrifice to keep up safe and secure.

Just click on the image to be taken to the files of each star block pattern on Debbie Mumm's website. Be sure and drop her a thank you email while you're there. 

No affiliation here on my part ... just love a good star block and especially love the way these blocks a "placed" on top of the big blue stars.

And when you're finished piecing the top, here are some ideas for possible quilting designs. Just click on the image to be taken to the store catalog to see larger images.
