Patriotism and quilting come together in this new book as six quilts honor the officer ranks between 2nd Lieutenant/Ensign through Colonel/Captain.

Original designs are provided for quilters or as inspiration for your own creative ideas for making a quilt to honor a service member. Tips are given for fabric selection, constructing the quilt, appliquéing, squaring a quilt, border preparation, and binding while chapter galleries show the versatility of the quilts for non-military applications. With easy-to-follow instructions, this book is perfect for quilters of all skill levels. Novice quilters can practice their techniques while more seasoned quilters can add to their repertoire.

A love of quilting and a desire to honor the men and women who defend our nation has culminated in this book. During her 25+ years as an active duty officer and reservist, Renelda Peldunas-Harter has always been fascinated with fabric, shapes, and color. As she and her family moved around the country with the military, she always found quilt guilds and after her final "promotion" to full-time civilian she has pursued quilting full-time.
