Our Summer Mystery Patriotic Quilt Challenge reaches its Penultimate Post. Our QOV Group Stars and Stripes created three different tops. They can guide you or inspire you to create something different with your blocks. We added two borders that tied the blocks together. One of our members created an On-Point Version. Check out the directions to make that version. Our Group did the Revisiting QOVF Annual Blocks proud.
PLEASE send your top pictures to me (email@example.com) for the Ultimate post for this challenge.
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.
