This is what I accomplished yesterday for the *QOV sewing day.  There was a huge selection of 'kits' prepared for our choosing or some instead worked on making miles of binding or a constellatioin of star blocks!  It was wonderful!  
I had a pile of 2 1/2" blocks which I had to sew into 4-patches first and then matched them up with squares to make a larger 4-patch!  The rows alternated the 4-patches with blue blocks for the pattern-keeping the reds running in a diagonal and while you are talking, snacking and laughing caused some ripping out to occur! lol
I have several blocks for two more rows finished and we take the work home to finish it up and return the top for additional work.  It was a huge success and such a pleasant way to say thank you to our veterans!

*QOV=Quilts of Valor which are presented to veterans upon request to the charity


  1. It's so much more fun when you've got people to work with.

  2. Love the colors, RWB is always a great combo.

  3. Thats a great quilt!! what a fun day!!!

  4. Nice work! Someone is going to be very happy to receive it.

  5. Good you defined the acronym QOV. :) These days, people use them for everything and mostly I have no idea what's going on.

I had so much fun making a coaster from the Diamond Dotz kit.  A very relaxing way to spend an hour! I also whipped up another Shop Hop Bloc...
