When I got an email from her a few weeks ago with directions for a simple Flag Block I pulled out my red, white, and blue scraps. I set out to make 10 blocks, but I somehow cut more pieces than I needed and ended up with 11. I can't blame the dreaded math this time. Apparently, I don't even know how to count.
Being just a teensy bit OCD, I couldn't possibly send a weird number of blocks like eleven! I had to make more, and as you know, I have plenty of scraps. Plus I love helping anyone who's helping Quilts of Valor, and when I pinned the borders onto my blocks .....
..... I found out that even my pins are patriotic! How cool is that? A little checking to make sure every block was just the right size .....
..... and all 15 blocks were ready to mail. Fifteen is a nice number.
If you would like to help with this block drive check out Gwen's QOV Facebook page --
