The Clever Design Makes It Easier Than It Looks!
At first glance this Quilt of Valor quilt seems to include a lot of piecing to create striped sashing around half-square triangles. Instead, the designer used a tan and red stripe fabric. It perfectly sets off the denim blue and white triangles.
To make the quilt, look for a red striped fabric, then find a matching fabric, in this case tan, for the cornerstones. Once you have that, it’s a breeze to stitch the quilt together.
The overall design emerges due to the orientation of the half-square triangles. Create eight at a time to make short work of them.
Once your quilt is completed, display it for patriotic holidays or all summer long. Or, give it to a vet in thanks for their service.
The finished quilt, from designer Marianne Fons, is 55 1/2″ x 73 1/2″.
