Here's the finished top for the Quilts of Valor project. I'm pleased with the way it turned out, except that there is one block turned the wrong way. Can you find it? I could fix it, but am feeling lazy; also, I think it's the kind of thing that doesn't show when something is in use, only when you see it displayed on a wall. The star points in the border are the same size as the ones in the sashes, but don't look it. Interesing optical illusion, isn't it?

totally cool illusion. I think I found the "oops" block & I think I like it better... :o)

This is going to be a Fab-o quilt for a soldier! Thank you so much for making it.

I found the block too and rather like it the way it is. One of the pleasures of making the QofV quilts is that you don't have to work so hard on the designs!

Have you sent your QoV to Deb yet? Be sure and let us see it when it returns. I mailed my 7 off yesterday and now am gearing up for a few more.

One block turned the wrong way; is it the 4th row down- 3rd from the left in the photo? I couldn't find it in the photo but noticed it while I was looking at the real thing today! As Ive been looking at it, I have been thinking about doing some custom work on it instead of edge to edge. I never really know until I start quilting it! ;-)

I like the way it finished. It is an interesting illustion. Reminds me of the mace that the armored soldiers carried a few hundred years back. Don't ask why!
