Words of Valor #2

Because I liked gMarie's 36-patch blocks with the embroidered words so much, I split them into two different sets (check out those in yesterday's post, too) and paired them with her nine-patch blocks.

 Each of the twelve "word" blocks is unique.

The fabrics she chose are really gorgeous, and these photos do not even begin to do them justice.
In an email, gMarie said, "I was looking at those fabrics and just couldn't help myself. I just had to put the patch blocks together."  
She continued, "While I strongly dislike quilting, this is a very worthwhile cause, and one I couldn't pass up. I hope our combined efforts give someone comfort."

Even though she claims to dislike quilting, her blocks were spot-on accurate and crisply pressed. Working with her blocks was a joy.

Thank you gMarie for making the blocks for Words of Valor I and II. It was a pleasure working with you on these two quilts.

  5. You have been very busy. I love these blocks. And you have done a great job finishing them. I like the color choices and the sashing. Someone will love these two quilts. Also like the eagles... wonderful. You're going to be 12 before half the year is over.

  6. The military person that gets this will be so touched. It is so very special. It gives me the shivers to think how much people care and do for others in appreciation.
