Ray's All American Stars and Stripes

I made Ray’s All American Stars and Stripes as a tribute to my father. It is actually the second one I designed for him. The first one is named Marion’s All American Stars and Stripes. They were differentiated by the fact this one

(Ray’s) has a middle star in it, where Marion’s does not. Marion is his first name and Ray is his middle name. He did not receive a Quilt of Valor, but certainly deserved one. He served in the Pacific theater in WW II and was deeply affected by it. He, like most WW II vets spoke very little of his service and would be very honored for others to make a quilt with his name. I hope you enjoy making it. And thank you for helping cover our veterans and service members.

I was honored to have it chosen to hang in the Paducah show “To Honor and Comfort” at the National Quilt Museum.
