I will be making a couple Quilts of Valor for 2 family members, my Uncle who was in Vietnam and my son who was in Afghanistan. I have the following fabrics:
The eagle fabric is going to be the backing, I have enough of that fabric to do 2 lap size quilts.
This leads me to the following questions, out of the remaining 9 fabrics, how many should I use? Also, which fabrics do you think will go together the best? AND finally, any suggestions on blocks that will compliment all the lined fabric? I was thinking of doing some type of star block, just not sure which one. I don't want the block to be super elaborate since I really want to showcase the fabrics I chose.
Any suggestions will be greatly welcomed, here are some of the star blocks I was thinking of:
This block would be made into a 6 inch block, I would make 2 different color versions.
I'm thinking this is probably the block I am going to use even though paper piecing is not my forte...lol
Opinions welcome.....thank you!!!
