The 2021 Summer Patriotic Mystery Quilt: CLUE 2 is Here.

Clue 2 is ready to Download from the Quilting and Quilts of Valor page. Scroll down to 2. July and download. Clue 2 has fabric requirements, cutting, and sewing directions. Once you have made a couple of these blocks, you should be able to hit the exact center of the squares every time. See Direction #7.

What does this hour-glass block look like? QOV volunteers know this block from the National QOV October 2020 Call to Action. Quilts made from the hour-glass blocks were used to Award Veterans nominated in 2018. Stars and Stripes Sassy Sewers made a baker’s dozen of tops.

Here is this block used to show off center panels. The first, an eagle, a thread/paint/embellished fabric panel of art by Rhonda Denning. The second, is a top pattern supplied by National. We went after the scrappy look.
