WIP...QOV Eagle

A couple of days ago I posted my design wall progress on this quilt for Quilts of Valor.  Since then I was able to finish piecing the small red stars as begin sewing the blocks into rows.


My goal for today is to get the rows sewn together.  I'm not sure if I have enough blue fabric left to create the 6-inch borders as I planned so I may consider adding some red and white.

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.   

Happy Quilting,

Design Wall Monday…March 24, 2014

A while back I made the eagle block with the intention of using it as the focal point in a new QOV (Quilts of Valor) quilt.  Unfortunately I did not have enough fabric to make the rest so the block hung on my wall for several months.  Recently I was able to track down the identical red and blue fabrics.



Earlier this month I went to my local QOV sew-in and was told that we need 100 quilts done by June for a presentation.  That gave me incentive to finish the design and get this quilt top put together.
 
I found the eagle block in an old quilting magazine about ten years ago.  Unfortunately I only sketched up the design and did not record any information about the source of the design or the publication.  If anyone out there can provide that information, I’d be grateful.

There are still twelve small red star blocks to make before I can put the top together.
Thanks for stopping by.  I’m linked up with Patchwork Times.

Happy Quilting,
