Quilt of Honor Project

Quiltsy team is doing a quick community service project this month - we are making 5 quilts for a 9-11 ceremony honoring several veterans.  I volunteered to make a top.  I happened to see this design for a large block in a post on Facebook and thought it would be perfect if I made four big blocks with a border.  I used EQ7 to draw out the block and got to work today.  This is the first one - I love it!

Then I made block #2, reversing the blue and red blocks.  Very nice!

I needed another print, so dug into my stash and found the rest of my patriotic fabrics!  Hurray, I had some flag fabric to add to it and then to block number 3.

One more to go - I'll finish this up tomorrow and be ready to send it out to the quilter!  This was a really fun fabric and I love the blocks.  I think I might make up a couple more to finish into wall hangings.  Nice way to use of some of these red, white and blue fabrics!  It's fun to help with this worthy project and use some of my fabric stash at the same time.

Thanks so much for helping for my request. I'm so glad the team could step in! These look awesome, and I'm looking forward to seeing the whole quilt. I really appreciate your time (and searching for your Patriotic prints!!) Hugs!
