    Default 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
