Quilt of Valor #2

These are the blocks I'm currently working on for my second QOV. Most of these strings were donated from New York (thanks, Pat!) and also used scraps from Louisiana, Montana, Indiana, and Ohio. I got the pattern idea from Mary (HeartStrings Quilt Project) on her website: maryquilts.com and is called The Patriotic Star.

How fun is that? To send one wounded Soldier a quilt that came from all over the nation? The blocks have not been squared up, yet. Solid red strip blocks will go in the corners. Then I'm thinking about a row of whites/lights in Chinese Coins, then another row of blue.

Nice! White chineses coins and then blue diagonal stings would be a very nice finish.

I love this string quit! It has the look of a log cabin, but easier to make. I can't wait to see it finished.
