Quilts of Valor Block Drive

Been thinking of making just two or four blocks for a national effort?  This is the deal for you – there are PRIZES!  MQX Festivals holds enormous quilts shows and events.  It's too late for blocks to be submitted for the April New England show, but plenty of time for the Midwest show.  Check out this opportunity:

MQX needs YOU, and you, and you to make two blocks...

Want to make more? The top three individuals, group or organization that makes the most blocks will win nice prizes.....! *

MQX's goal for its 2014 shows (New England and Midwest) is to collect in excess of 1,250 blocks.

At last spring's New England show they collected over 300 blocks which were distributed to two active chapters of Quilts of Valor, Colorado and New England.

Can you think of a reason that they cannot double, triple or quadruple that number in 2014 if you contribute? Yeah,we didn't think so.........

There are two colorway choices:  1) Patriotic, and 2) Modern Grays.  
 All blocks are 12" finished.

All blocks used with permission from Marcia Hohn of Quilter's Cache with additional pattern details furnished by Candace West
