Learn About Quilts of Valor and Quilt Labels with Mark Lipinski
(Show 1813) 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 talks 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 make a Quilt Label. You will want to hear about his current WIP—legacy quilt blocks.
