January BOM – Quilts of Valor project

Standard

We had a great response to the Quilts of Valor project last night!  We had 39 block kits made up and every one of them were signed out.  If you were not at the meeting or didn’t get a block kit, you can still participate!  You can still make a set of blocks (or more) out of your fabric (red, white & blue please) to bring to the January meeting.

We would like to make a couple of quilt tops for Quilts of Valor at the January meeting.  The first one will be made from our block kits and we are hoping to get enough scrappy blocks to make at least another quilt top.

So, on to the tutorial.

Here are the pieces that were in your block kits

With this kit you will make two blocks.  They are made up of simple 4 patches.

When they are finished they will look like this

In the block on the right the arrangement of the red and blue squares are not important.

The final quilt will be laid out in one of the following ways.
