The blocks above will ultimately go into a QOV. They are the blocks we used to make for HOB but they were pretty darned easy even for the beginners in our quilt ministry at church so I cut a ton in red, white and blue for QOV. They languished for quite some time in a box in our 'quilt closet' so I brought then home a while back and have finally begun working on them. For QOV, I need a 4X5 setting so that, with sashing and borders, they'll be large enough. That means 11 to go for this one!
(Since I've had a couple of question re: the mention of HOB above, thought I'd just share a link for anyone who's interested to check out. They are/were quilts made for families of soldiers who've made the ultimate sacrifice..just a small thank you for the service and sacrifice their loved one made.
I didn't take a new picture because then I would've had to lay out all the blocks again and pick them up again (since my design 'wall' is not in place yet..still more to work on in the sewing room). But I am so close to having enough and just need to push to the finish. May get them completed today while watching opening day of the Texas Rangers (which I'm looking forward to with fear and trepidation given their injuries!!!!!).
