Stars and Stripes Sampler Book

I just got my Stars and Stripes Sampler Book in the mail this week. I am always looking for patriotic quilt blocks for the valor bee. I was not disappointed! It is full of different blocks and techniques perfect for QOV.
The only thing about these blocks is that they will have to be manipulated to meet the size requirements for the bee.
But for a wealth of ideas, patterns and on sale to boot... I think it was a great investment. Check it out at


  1. Looks like a very cool book!

  4. I made this quilt as a 40th birthday present for my son, soon after his promotion to Sgt. Major in the Army. He retired last year as a CSM after 30 years. It's a great quilt.
