Quilt of Valor

This is a little something I started before Christmas and couldn't seem to find the time to get it finished. I wanted to make a quilt for a local boy who just lost his legs and an arm in Afghanistan. So I decided today was the day. Well if I hadn't done 20 of the star points wrong, you might be viewing a completed top. I took them out and redid them, there was no way around it. I wanted it to be perfect.

This is the pile I started with this morning.

If you look close you can see my error. I just hate when I do that.

This is the finished stack of blocks. That I will have to put together another day.

  1. The fabric and the pattern are so very beautiful Jeanette. I could not see any mistakes...it truly is a beautiful job. You will have to post a picture of it when it is done. You are so inspiring.

  4. I see the error, but I think I might have left it. However, I understand in this case wanting it to be perfect.

  8. I like the blocks. Sometimes if we don't point out the error people won't notice. We must be related cause I would't leave it either
