Quilt of Valor #2

I used the "Sparkle" pattern from Piece N Quilt to make my 2nd QOV for the year. Natalia's pattern is super easy and makes a great quilt. The pattern was designed for a Christmas quilt. I traded the green for a blue and used a fun patriotic fabric for the background.
The blocks are almost 25 inches square. The quilt goes together pretty quickly.
Ruby is now 1 year old and very obedient. She loves her big red dog. She has never torn the stuffing out of any of her babies.

Here is the presentation case... it is folded in  quarters.....

 I am 6 quilts behind for my goal of QOVs. Not sure I will be able to catch up. 5 of us in my not-so-fun quilt guild are going to begin meeting once a month for a sew day. This month we are going to make a large Carpenter Star quilt.  I will be making my in blues and reds for another QOV. 

The next set of blocks to leave are these 55 flower blocks...

I think they look odd without stems. These have also been sitting around for too many years to count. These will be donated to the not-so-fun guild. There is a member who takes old blocks and makes donation quilts.  One less bin in my cupboard!  I think I have 6 empty bins so far, feels good to have the extra empty space. 

I am counting the blocks I am giving away as fabric out. It feels really good to see my "fabric out" numbers growing
