Veterans Strippy

On my design wall this morning is part of a quilt in progress. I sewed all the parts this weekend, but can't fit it all on my design wall.  Now on to the assembly.  This quilt will finish at 70 x 90.

 It is a special mission by the United Methodist Women's Association for a local veterans home.  They want to supply  twin size quilts for a 42 bed facility.  When the veteran leaves the home, he will take his quilt with him, so 42 quilts is just the beginning.

 They ask that they all have a 7 x 9 grid with 10 inch blocks., with 7 squares in the center to be white in the shape of a cross. They will screen print special messages and prayer on the white blocks.  The remaining 56 blocks can be in any design.  I made up a few designs in EQ.  Our womens church group is also doing one and my quilt club is doing one.

Here is the EQ version:

I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.  Hop on over there to see all the wonderful projects being created by other quilters.

Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. Wow, that's an ambitious project! Do they anticipate making all-the-same quilts over and over? I'd think that would get tedious. One of the nice things about QOV is the variety.

  2. What a nice idea! I love the cross in the middle. Your design is wonderful.

  3. I like the diagonal lines the design creates. That's a big job -- providing 42 quilts and then keep supplying them. Keep up the good work.
