Quilt of Valor - 8 Blocks On Point

Yesterday I was able to get my latest QOV quilt top completed.  Yeah! 
QOV-8Blocks_quilt_top






This top measures 56 1/2” x 80”.

Two of the blocks in this quilt are the QOV 10th Anniversary Block.  If you are interested in making this block it can be found at HERE at qovf.org








QOV-8B_blocks
I started with eight 9-inch finished blocks and added dark blue/navy strips to make the blocks measure 12-inch. 





QOV-8B_Sash
The sashing is 4-inch wide with cornerstones that create stars at the intersections.








Setting_Triangle
I made each setting triangle separately using three different fabric strips before cutting the triangles.  The corners are two triangles sewn together to form a larger one.  Getting the red strips to line up from triangle to triangle was a bit of a challenge for me.







This will be the last QOV quilt top I’ll be making for a while.  Next month I’ll be heading up to the lake for the summer and have other quilting projects planned for my time there.  In the meantime I’ll try to get more blocks cut and made before the next sew-in.

Thanks for stopping by.
