Alex shows you how to turn a 9” Ohio Star block into a quilt pattern she calls “In Honor Of”. Even a beginning quilter can use this easy approach to make a Quilt of Valor (QOV) for a service member touched by war.
Mark Lipinski tells you about his Quilts of Valor experience, and recounts how he met the Vietnam Vet whose remembrance bracelet he wore in the ‘70s. How many jobs are there in quilting? Mark has done almost all of them. Listen as he tells about some special ones. He candidly talks about his loss of enthusiasm for quilting, and how he (and so can you) gained back the joy via a more mindful perspective that he learned from….(watch and see). Mark shows you a fun way to label your quilts in the form of a letter. You will want to hear about his current WIP—legacy quilt blocks.
