QOV blocks

My goal was to complete a quilt top for Marjorie's QOV challenge, but poor health and time just got the best of me.  Here are the blocks that I did complete.  They are off to the Linhart's tomorrow - hopefully to be incorporated into another top.  I will tell you working on these blocks really brings a sense of appreciation of our soldiers - I thought of unknown soldiers coming home and receiving one of these quilts.  I read a comment on Marjorie's blog that really touched me - it said that if each quilter in the US sent just one top, we would be a lot closer to reaching QOV's goal to give EVERY returning soldier a quilt.  It's the least we can do as quilters to appreciate our freedom.  It hit me hard.  I will continue to work on more blocks as time goes along - I already have a bunch cut out.   If you have an orphan block that looks patriotic - you can still send them off to the Linhart's.  Their address can be found on Marjorie's blog - just click the QOV badge on my sidebar.
