Very Special Show & Tell: Quilts of Valor Block

QOV Candice BlocksGreetings!  Friday is here and a 3 day weekend is ahead of us- in honor of Memorial Day this Monday.  This Show & Tell could not be more appropriate to share with you.  Candice, Creative Director here at the ‘Works, has been busy making blocks for Quilts of Valor.  Shown here are 4 blocks she pieced using some beautiful Clothworks fabrics (recognize the marbled blenders from the Tranquility collection?).  Candice used the free pattern from the Quilts of Valor website, the Valor Square, which happens to be the 2016 National Block for QOV.  The Valor Square block is a fairly simple block that even a confident beginner can piece together with ease.  Find the free pattern download here.

QOV signed blockThese beautiful blocks will be forwarded to a LQS who are collecting more finished blocks which will be pieced together to make quilts to donate to Quilts of Valor, a charity that honors the men and women who have served our country, with quilts.  As instructed on the QOV website, Candice even signed her block.

Find out more about the Quilts of Valor charity here.  Download the free pattern of the Valor Square Block here Visit a LQS to stock up on Clothworks basics and printed fabrics, too!

Have a super Memorial Day weekend and Happy Sewing!
