Quilt of Valor

Quilters and designers from AccuQuilt and Moda are on a year long mission to pay it forward. In January I made my first Quilt of Valor for the year and presented it to a local businessman, see post here. Also in January as part of the Island Batik challenge I made and presented another to a friend, see post here.

Quilt of Valor #3

Using the 8″ Mix and Match Qube from AccuQuilt and Island Batik fabric from their Foundations Collection I now have a third Quilt of Valor for the year. The fabrics are Candy, Storm and White Solid.

The dies are 4″ finished square and 4″ finished half square triangles to make a 12″ block.

QOV recipient

This quilt was awarded to one of my favorite truck drivers. Because I could not award the quilt myself I mailed it to his nephew, also a favorite truck driver who then awarded it for me.

John is an veteran of the Gulf War who owns and operates John McCammon Trucking out of Indiana.
