The quilt itself is lovely - bright, deep reds, rich royal blues and a soft blue and white. The trip around the world layout is so nice. I have new ideas for using scraps plus a few standard color strips. I would conduct the construction differently, avoiding the unsewing, if I'm making ALOT of blocks.
So, here is my QOV top. I keep humming a certain, old song in my head "From A Distance" by Bette Midler. It looks beautiful "from a distance". Some squares are a bit wonky, some seams do not intersect to perfection.
Our soldiers are SO worthy, so off it goes to Alycia. My contribution to the Quilts of Valor mission! I hope you will find time to contribute some blocks for this program.
