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
