This Fallen Hero Granny square works up to a whopping 12 inches. This would be a perfect square for a pillow. Showing that you love your country should not just be left for the Fourth of July. My retired Navy husband would appreciate this hanging on the wall of his man cave. This is a pretty square.

This is a very patriotic granny square. You do not have to be or be a fallen hero in your family to appreciate this project. This would be appropriate in any home.

The commenter is correct in that when a soldier falls in action, the star is gold, not white. When my youngest son was serving in Iraq, we proudly displayed a blue star sticker on our front door. But this white star works perfectly if you want to keep the patriotic theme and honor all the troopspast, present and future.

Beautiful pattern. My only comment is on the title. There is a deep set tradition in the military, mostly among the spouses that a yellow star signifies a fallen hero. Based on that, I think that if you are going to call it a 'fallen hero" granny square, I think the star should be yellow. There is a deep set tradition in the military, mostly among the spouses that a yellow star signifies a fallen hero. Granted, it could be made any way and with any colors, though, I guess that would just be my personal preference.
