I’m really enjoying this St. Louis 16 patch block. It is totally mindless piecing. It is made to be cut from fat quarters so there is minimal cutting too. I don’t like cutting. I never, ever use fat quarters because I am too cheap to buy them but I got this bundle cheap somewhere and I like it. I like it so much that this morning I looked for more online but realized that I was still too cheap to buy fat quarter bundles.
The blocks go together quickly. I made the two on the right in 20 minutes.
Quilts of Valor in Ohio had a few big Veteran’s Day events. I don’t have pictures from them yet but I did a presentation last night to a World War II veteran.
He told me that he was reluctant to sign up to get a quilt because he was pretty sure we were a scam. I’m not sure if he was more surprised that I was there or irritated that his wife was right about us not being a scam.
“No sir I am not a scam”!! LOL He probably wanted to take that quilt home with him from the looks of it! Love your 16 patch blocks:)
Can’t wait to see the pictures. My goal for 2014 is to make at least three quilts of valor. You inspire me.
It is a lot of fun. You get addicted.
Your blocks are perfect for a quilts of valor quilt! How nice that you got to meet a recipient.
~I love that he thought Quilts of Valor was possibly a scam! And that his wife was right!
~I love being owned by my pets (black lab, two cats), but my crabby, deaf Friskie has been diagnosed with stomatitis, and now I’m trying to find a “single source protein” food that he will eat. Dread the thought of having to take his teeth out! (Only mention this because you’re a vet :))
Your sixteen patches look great!
