I support the Quilts of Valor Block Drive initiated by Alycia. You can get the details of the block drive here at http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2012/10/quilt-block-sew-long.html. She has created a clear tutorial for constructing the block, borrowed with permission, from the queen of scraps herself, Bonnie Hunter.
Should you have a generous nature, you can show appreciation for the sacrifice others have made for our freedom. Will you make up a few blocks and send them on to Alycia.? She will enter your name for a prize drawing of 5 yards of fabric!
If you are not able to send in blocks, go ahead and try out the tutorial for the Scrappy Trip Around The World block. It is a fun technique. You only need 16 inch length of strips. Here is a couple layouts you might use for these blocks.
This quilt is a 4 x 4 grid, 16 blocks
It finishes at 60 x 60
This quilt is a 4 x 6 grid, 24 blocks
It finishes at 60 x 84
A little more fine rotation, same blocks, you can control the flow of colors. I like this one!
I hope you will consider being a part of this program. I thank ALL OUR MILITARY for their service! Thank you!
