My question

First-Judy, your New York beautie is wonderful. I've often wondered about the Hoffman Challenge, but never got up the nerve to enter it.
OK-I've been making a vew quilts for the Quilts of Valor program over the last few years. Mostly easy, quick, suck as chinese coin or just strips. All have been red, white and blue.
Now our guild wants to make some to give as a group thing.
What would be quick and easy? A simple 9 patch? Something more involved?
These will go to the wounded men and women who are air lifted to Germany, then come back to the US. I'm at a loss for something that would keep my interest, but also be easy.
--Judy--I think the board has been 'down" for 5 days or so, but people must be quilting or watching the olympics.

    A group quilt for Quilts of Valor could be a sampler kind of thing where everyone uses the same background color for her block (white?) and reds and blues for the other parts. Make the blocks 10.5 inches (unfinished) and use a "star" or "heart" theme so members could make heart or star blocks. Or both. Applique or pieced. Whatever. Go to Webshots.com and search for "quilts of valor" and see examples of group quilts.
