QOV Wednesday

Good Wednesday Morning!

Got a little Quilt of Valor Inspiration for you this morning.


The first two are Tops
Charlene and Bernie 
Participated in the QOV Mystery called The Patriot
and these two are their creations!




On one of our Sew Days we used strings and made the half square blocks
I was given a set to make a quilt with 
and I had a Star Idea
So I made 4 squares for each star 
and 
Ta Da!

PS - I quilted it
It will be bound at the next sew day


This cool one came from Nancy C in Loveland CO
I really like that white background fabric!


This beauty was pieced by the Tumbleweed Quilters in Arizona
it was Quilted by Jackie W
Isn't it cool!!!



Hope you all have a chance to stitch today!!
Enjoy!!

I have a hint for you...when making string half square triangle units, we made 7.5" string squares. Then we paired it up with a plain fabric and drew a diagonal line on the wrong side of the plain fabric. Paired the plain and the string squares, sewed 1/4" away from the drawn line, and then cut apart. 2 half square triangle units. Squared them up and we had perfect blocks to use in our pattern. (You probably knew that already! When we started the center string on the string block, we used a 2.5" strip so when it was cut apart, we had a nice sized string meeting up with the plain fabric) Hope this makes sense and helps some others with these amazing blocks.
