QOV sew day

I have been to the Abilene Quilt Guild a couple of times now. Seems like a wonderful group of people. I was able to join a few others for National Quilts of Valor Sew Day and worked on these blocks:

I made 8 there and these 4 at home. Such an easy block, but like a log cabin, can be placed in so many different lay outs. I may have to do this for myself!

We are in Month 10 of the Manchester By the Sea BOM! It is much easier when you don’t need to do months worth at a time to catch up!

This will be a lovely quilt! I am so excited! I love how it is coming together and all the colors. So very well balanced, and a great mix of blocks.

I made this quilt several years ago. I believe it is called Lift Off. I haven’t had a baby boy to gift it to, so put it with a couple of other space themed baby items for a basket auction at church. It made $120! Later that afternoon, one of the youth leaders asked if I would make a full size quilt that could be raffled for another fundraiser! On Mothers Day! I have a pattern in mind and pulled fabrics today, will be patriotic. Looking forward to wrapping up the BOM to focus on this new project.
