Pattern Details

The above picture is an illustration of my first Quilt of Valor made using Missouri Star's Disappearing Hour Glass video as my guide. I love the look but hated wrestling with the blocks. A layer cake friendly pattern, utilizes two 10-inch squares to make four half-square triangle blocks. The result is the fabric bias is on the outer edge. Frankly, it was a wrestling match to get everything to line up. No matter how carefully I pressed those blocks, I had stretching issues. Since I want to use this pattern again, I set out to redesign it using HST blocks made the traditional way (straight fabric grain on the outer edges of the block). No matter which way you decide to make your blocks, I highly recommend watching the video. She does an excellent job illustrating how to cut and reassemble this block. The pattern is also fat quarter friendly. As you can see above, I used multiple prints of the reds, creams, and blues to make the QOV quilt. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Using a rotary cutter Sew a quarter inch seam SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 71 x 81

I became fascinated with quilting in 2005 when my sister-in-law offered to make one for my guest room. I'm still in love with quilting all these years later. It's my passion, obsession, and therapy. I recently retired from a 25 year career in Accounting and am finally able to get down on paper all those wonderful quilting designs that have been floating around in my head waiting for an escape!
