Default QOV and orphan blocks

I had a stack of the strip blocks from a QOV I made couple of years ago... found this panel in my stash. I designed this quilt on EQ8 and made using my stash. I’m going to send this to my Uncle who is a Korean War vet. My aunt just recently passed away and I hope honoring his service will lift his spirits. I’ll be taking this to LA’er on Monday... It’s 66 x 74

What a great way to use up those orphan blocks! It looks as if they were planned for this quilt. This will be appreciated.

That's a beautiful quilt. Hope your uncle thinks so too. I'm sure he will be honored that you thought of him and his service to our country. Nice job!

You have a great eye...........and a great stash LOL You designed a lovely combination to make a thoughtful tribute to your uncle, especially in his time of need and isolation. Thank him for his service and thank you for your generous spirit.
