So with so many getting in on the Just One Star, including me, I got to thinking we need to make at least one Quilt of Valour for Canadian service personnel. To do this I need some help.
I've designed a quilt and need people to send me some some Maple Leaf blocks. I've provided a pattern here.
We need 16 blocks of Maple Leaf with Stem, and 8 Maple Leafs without Stems, for each quilt. Both blocks are 12 1/2" unfinished. This will give us a 68"x68" quilt.
Each quilt will require (8) 12 7/8" squares for the setting triangles. If you like you could send in a square with your blocks. If not that's ok. I should be able to scrounge up some.
If you're a quilt shop who'd like to donate backing/batting, or if you can't do that, sell it to me at cost I would really appreciate it.
Any long-arm quilter willing to quilt this would also be appreciated.
Ideally I'd love every person who sends in to send 2 Maple Leaf with Stem, 1 Maple Leaf without Stem, and 1 12 7/8" square.
If you can only make 1 block that's ok too! I will make up the difference in blocks.
So who's in?
Please make sure you're not set to no-reply if you want to join in. I need to be able to reply to you and give my address. If you don't hear from me that is probably the issue, just send me an email.
The stem block has a mistake. The stem should read 6 1/2" x 1 1/2". Sorry I've fixed it now.
