Quilt of Valor for my brother-in-law, Tom.
54 x 72
It's the third of three QOV quilts for family members who are veterans. I want to surprise them on Veteran's Day. Now I just need to remember to get them in the mail.
I was going to make a Disappearing Four Patch for Tom's quilt but when Alycia posted a block for this year's QOV block drive designed by Jan O of The Colorful Fabriholic I made a few of these nine inch blocks for the drive (speaking of getting things mailed...yikes, I see the envelope of them still sitting here) and decided to make lots more for Tom's quilt.
These blocks are quick, easy and fun and I love the layout although I think there are endless possibilities for these blocks.
I quilted it with loops and stars on my DSM using blue thread in the dark sections and white thread in the light sections of the quilt.
Bound and washed it is oh so crinkly and soft.
The back is a 100% silky cotton with stars - a sheet from the thrift store that was in excellent condition. (Oh,, what sheets these people must have at home to sleep on if these are what they take to the thrift store).
You can see the pattern on the back too since I used blue thread in sections and white thread in others.
A big thank you to all of our Veterans!
