Custom Honors Quilt -- A Friday Finish 10.17.14

Here's a customer quilt that was on and off the frame this week.  It was made by two ladies in my local quilt guild.  Our guild is having an honor's dinner in which members of the service are being honored (and given quilts).  It should be a nice dinner.  This is the first time our guild has done this.  It may be a sold out crowd.  We have 26 honorees.

I finished the longarming on this quilt this week.

Here's the quilt on the frame.  It's a Fons & Porter's QOV pattern.

I did freehand stars and swirls on the border.  The customer requested freehand stars.
I did the Circle Lord Egyptian eye pattern in the open areas of the quilt around the center panel.
I am did freehand echoed feathers on the eagle and freehand echoed stripes on the flag stripes.

I'm happy to link up with Richard and Tanya Quilts for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.
I'm also linking up with Janet at Simply Pieced for TGIFF.

This is really spectacular, between the terrific eagle panel and your lovely quilting. I really like the effect of the Egyptian Lord motif on the stripes - like a waving flag look. Your guild's dinner is going to be a very emotional event.
