This pattern is designed to honor military members for their service. The pattern treats the center star as one huge nine-patch block and goes together quickly.
Quilt of Valor
I got great satisfaction making my first Quilt of Valor this summer. Missouri Star Quilt's The Disappearing Hourglass Quilt- Easy Quilting with Layer Cakes! is a fabulous pattern for that project.
As soon as I saw Missouri Star Quilt’s Disappearing Hourglass video, I knew I had to try this pattern. However, the next time around I will make half square triangles using the traditional method. I did not like working with the outer edges on the bias. As quick as Jenny’s method is, you have to be very careful when pressing not to stretch. I was very concerned about the rippling once I had attached the borders. The pattern itself is fabulous…it was a natural for my first Quilt of Valor.
