Glory Stars Quilt – Fons & Porter

About this Quilt

Big block quilts are appealing for many reasons and Glory Stars is no exception. The big block design of this quilt, along with its pieced sashing, creates a bold secondary design that adds so much to the look of this project. The primary and secondary designs of this quilt are something to admire — a traditional star quilt is always a welcome sight! This quilt makes an excellent Quilt of Valor candidate — it’s a lovely patriotic quilt pattern that features red, white and blue solid fabrics, although it would work well with coordinating prints, too. Donate this quilt to a service man or woman, or make it for someone who has patriotic pride, like a friend or family member, or for yourself! Patriotic quilts never go out of style. They make wonderful accents to any home year-round, and especially during those patriotic holidays.
