Quilts of valor

This red and white quilt was made with blocks that I won at our Guild meeting in July. Every month, we make a designated block; and one person win them at the meeting. I was so happy that I won these ones. I wanted to make a red and white quilt since the show in NYC. The picture was taken on the floor because my design wall is way too busy right now. But the quilt is a twin size rectangle. I have donated to the "Quilts of Valor" program and I hope the soldier that gets it feels the love we send that way.

The block below is the block we made for the August raffle. It was fun to sew it since I had the 2 inches square almost all cut in my stash. The half square triangle was made using 3 1/2" strips and cut using the "easy angle" rule. The block is 12 inches finished.
