Guild Challenge Quilts

We were given an orphan block at our guild a few months ago. We had to make something out of it. I was lucky enough to get a patriotic block. I had lots of blocks sent to me by my dear online friends. It was easy to put them into a sampler type quilt. I won second place-----there was a tie for first or I would have been third place. This one is also for our military in Afghanistan. I can fit 4 in a box and then mail them off. I buy the 14 x 14 boxes at Wal-Mart for under a dollar. This is much easier than search
ing all over for boxes.

Another beautiful quilt Eileen. If the orphan block was the 8 pointed star think it was mine. Tried it and never got the hang of doing it that way which is why it ended up an orphan.

You did a lovely job. I started a QOV today in honor of Memorial Day.
