    Re: A Bit of Everything QOV

    Grammaterry I should have spelled it out but I am just used to saying QOV.

    I was with you and thought this looked a little off Linda Mac. It was a case where I trimmed it and then could not just turn one side around. After your question I thought about it and removed the block. And then did the following . Do you like this better. I know I do. A fixed mix.jpg

    Thank you for telling me about QoV's. I guess I should have been able to figure it out...but....alas my mind isn't working like it used to

    grammaterry,

    QOV stands for Quilt of Valor. usually given to those that have served in the military, or those that are serving. I have made several, and they ALL love them very much. I am currently working on one to give to one of our Volunteer Firefighters that was badly injured rescuing a child from a very bad auto wreck. He will be out of work for several weeks, but has survived and will return to duty when he can.

    ediane,

    I think your QOV is beautiful. I am sure that the person you give it to will fall in love with it and cherish it forever. GOOD JOB ! ! !

    Dave

    I caught it but did not have fabric to change it so I left it. My goal was to make each block different so I thought what the heck.

    love it and I love the scrappiness of all the blocks, just curious is the blue block on the end of the second row turned wrong or did you plan it that way.

    It's wonderful. It is an inspiration for me to venture out a little making my quilts for Wounded Warriors. Thank you for your work.

    A Bit of Everything QOV

    I love doing the QOV quilts but I also love to scrap quilt and very seldom follow patterns. I recently bought one but I have not opened the box yet. To be honest it scares me to death. So I have been working on cleaning out my stash. While doing this I found 2 gold, and blue blocks (position 2 and 12) that I grabbed out of the QOV bins probably 8 months ago . And 4 red, blue and white blocks ( center 4) I got from the same location at least 6 months ago. I decided the red, white and blue would be the center, made red white and blue blocks for the corners, and then sewed up the remaining in blues and golds. I found the perfect borders and put it all together. Hope you like it.
