Plaid # 8 - and the first QOV step

My February Goal for ALYOF and for me (grin) was to finish Plaid #8.  And - I am glad to say that I did!!!  I quilted the heck out of it - for fun and to try a new pattern.

Here it is:

Of course I used a purple plaid backing. The fabrics in the top are shirtings - but this is a flannel-ish type fabric.  It washed up super soft.

So - are you stitching along with the Quilt of Valor?   So far the

The Fabric has been posted:

The Cutting Instructions:

And now we will start on the stitching. In my head - each step should take about 1 hour, or less - as most of you truly sew quicker than I.

Block Number 1:

We will be making 24 Star blocks - this is the first step in getting them ready.

They will measure 9 ½ inches unfinished.

I do everything in bulk so that when I am ready to assemble to block all the pieces are ready.

Grab your 48 – 4 inch White Squares.

Thank you SO much for playing along - the entire pattern can now be found at:
