My friend Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic designed a block and offered it for a block drive for Quilts of Valor. I met her for coffee one day to discuss it and by that evening I had made half of the blocks needed for my top. They are that easy.
Since you all know that Quilts of Valor is a cause close to my heart, I'm joining up with Alycia at Alycia Quilts and Jan to hold a block drive too for QOV-Eastern Missouri This will be the first time I've done a block drive from this side of things. Usually I'm making blocks to send to other block drives, so I invite you to join in the fun and help make our veterans feel the appreciation and love they deserve for their service to us. Thanks to Alycia and Jan for letting me share in this block drive for our veterans.
Here is the finished top that I made.
These blocks are very addictive and before you know it, you will have a large stack. You can find the tutorial for making the blocks HERE or HERE. The cutting instructions make two blocks at the same time. That's a bonus in my book. Please use patriotic fabrics with neutrals and lights or darks as suggested.
You can send any blocks for the QOV-Eastern Missouri group to me between now and the end of the year. I will post pictures of all the finished tops that are made.

Thank you for your help in getting these quilts made. I'll be thinking of some means to reward your efforts.
