QOV Blocks for MQX
Here are the Quilt of Valor Blocks I made for MQX. The MQX Quilt Festival takes place in Manchester, NH April 9-12. I took 2 classes today. I'm signed up for one more class tomorrow as well as the Friday Evening Dinner. The QOV Blocks are to be collected at the dinner.
There were 3 different blocks to choose from. Each block came with directions. Colorway choices were either patriotic or modern grays. I chose the Buzz Saw pattern. It was paper pieced which I like to use when striving for accuracy. Here's the paper pattern.
I made 8 units to make 2 blocks.
They were very easy to sew 4 units together to make each block.
The whole process only took about 2 hours. I wish I had started this earlier so I could have made more blocks. I did find an address to send more blocks if I decide to make more. It's such a worthy cause. I got a really good feeling after making them. I have to make more! Thank you, MQX!
