Debra has been asked to make a special quilt for the Quilts of Valor project to be used in their display in Houston. Graciously, Debra is allowing some of her blogging friends to participate in the project with her. Here are my two blocks that I made.
I am proud of myself because I usually only work with right angles. I am more of a square/rectangle type person. But I managed to make these and their points match and they are the right size. And I even managed to change the pattern to get rid of the set-in seams. Note, I took the pictures before pressing, so they don't look quite square.
I am also proud to be part of the Quilts of Valor project. When I was in the quilt store, Tiny Stitches, buying the fabric for these blocks (any reason to visit the quilt store) the ladies who were working (shout out to Barb and Pam who played with my daughter while I searched for fabric) thought they should get the store involved in this project. So I am going to print out some information and bring it by the store.
As some of you know, my brother-in-law has been on two tours of duty in Iraq, and will be leaving again in the next few months. So this project is really near and dear to my heart. In the new year, I will be making time to work on quilts for this project. I have decided that my skills are good enough to participate.
