Triple delight

My quilt club decided to make three charity quilts in one shot.  One for my charity-a local group that sends care packages to our troops overseas, one for another quilter's charity-to support a young man with lymphoma, and one for a charity we have been supporting for a few years now-a local Special Olympics chapter.  We made three patriotic quilts.  We used Dorothy Young's Tamara's Choice for our pattern.  They are all scrappy, with the borders a little different.  I quilted mine with stars and banners, sort of.  The back of my quilt is a patriotic fabric that fit my theme very well.  I was going to try to describe it, but a picture is much better.  Here the back is.

And so long as I am adding pictures, here are the stars.
I hope these worthwhile groups are all able to make some money for each of their causes with our quilts.
