In honor of all who serve, I made a block contribution to our Soldier's Angel project this Memorial Day weekend. The guild is gathering 12" blocks to make into quilts. Here's the unit I'll be turning in next meeting. I had a challenge putting it together. The pattern I had was for an 8" block and I had to convert it to a 12". The problem was the stripe piece has 5 pieces and I had to figure out what each piece would be that would line up with the star. If I'd made the star first it would have been a piece of cake, cuz all I'd had to do was measure that smallish stripe in the flying geese unit and I'd have known what the others had to be. I now have enough strips to make some crazy unit to give a third block.
