Marjorie's QOV challenge, but poor health and time just got the best of me. Here are the blocks that I did complete. They are off to the Linhart's tomorrow - hopefully to be incorporated into another top. I will tell you working on these blocks really brings a sense of appreciation of our soldiers - I thought of unknown soldiers coming home and receiving one of these quilts. I read a comment on Marjorie's blog that really touched me - it said that if each quilter in the US sent just one top, we would be a lot closer to reaching QOV's goal to give EVERY returning soldier a quilt. It's the least we can do as quilters to appreciate our freedom. It hit me hard. I will continue to work on more blocks as time goes along - I already have a bunch cut out. If you have an orphan block that looks patriotic - you can still send them off to the Linhart's. Their address can be found on Marjorie's blog - just click the QOV badge on my sidebar.
