I've been wanting to make a Quilt of Valor and when I saw this quilt of valor pattern on someone's blog and decided it might be a good one to make. The top is finished as of yesterday.
There is one basic block that measures 8 1/2" and it's very easy to make. The strips are cut to 2 1/2" and then submit to 2 1/2", 4 1/2" and 6 1/2". A dark blue and light HST and a brown and light HST are in opposite corners.
When you sew 4 of these together with the blue in the middle, you get a 16" block with a blue pinwheel in the middle.
Put together into 4 blocks wide and 5 blocks long, it comes out to 64" x 80" which is within the correct size for a QOV. A friend of mine goes to the QOV meetings every month and she said she will take it in for me when I get it finished, which I plan to do this month.
I'm also working on my Dear Jane blocks for January - Row H. Thanks for visiting!
