A Quilt of Valor is a wonderful way to honor those who serve and defend, and to show how much we appreciate their sacrifice. In this episode, Mary is joined by Liz Porter to discuss patriotic quilt patterns. They present the creative use of eight pointed stars that allow for an original design within your quilt.
