Celebrating Memorial Day making my Quilts of Valor blocks

I got in a little sewing time over the Memorial Day weekend and was able to piece my Quilts of Valor (QOV) 10th anniversary blocks that my guild, the Choo Choo Quilters, are helping to make. With the fabric pieces pre-cut, the assembly line piecing goes quickly. Nine blocks are complete!

8.5" unfinished size.
The QOV project is a wonderful way for all quilters to honor our American service men and women. If anyone would like to contribute a block or two to this project, visit the Quilts of Valor web site, and find an Under Our Wings Quilt Shop at which you can drop them off. There are several great quilt shops in Tennessee that are participating. Quilt blocks made with the 10th Anniversary block design can be submitted through November 2013. The Choo Choo Quilters will be accepting completed quilt blocks at the June 17 guild meeting

Free block and quilt patterns and other information is on the QOV web site.
