I am back to my quilting projects. I took a break to start substitute teaching part time so I haven’t been completing as many projects in the past month. I started this Quilt of Valor last year when I started making selvage strip blocks and modern Disappearing nine patch squares. When I started working again on this project, I needed to make more selvage blocks and more nine patch quilt blocks so that the quilt would be large enough (at least 55″ x 65″). Here is a tutorial of a modern Disappearing nine patch quilt block using different layouts of the nine patch squares before cutting them: http://www.stlouisfolkvictorian.com/2012/07/modernized-d9p.html I made the selvage strip blocks by sewing selvage strips (red and blue) on to a muslin base. I put together the Disappearing nine patch blocks for the main section of the quilt. Then I added the borders. I used free motion quilting for the center of the quilt and a walking foot for straight line quilting in the borders. I found a red/ white/ and blue plaid fabric to use for the binding. Keep having fun sewing and quilting.
