Though I haven’t in the past year, I have made several quilts for QOV (Quilts of Valor). This is one I made starting with an orphan block which I used as a center medallion, then used left over squares to add the border. To gain more length, I used two other orphan blocks and strip pieced the added portion. I added a simple white border to increase the overall size. I’m not sure of the overall size, but I think it is in the 50 in X 70 in range. The top was machine pieced, then hand quilted.
