5 blocks for Kevin the Quilter

Have you heard about the quilt project that's gone viral? A quilter named Kevin launched an effort earlier this year to get quilters to make 12-in blocks he could use to make quilts for returning veterans, part of the Quilts of Valor project.
 I made these 5, and it only took me 30 minutes:
They are so simple, but won't they make a great quilt? Kevin's first post suggested that he hoped to get enough blocks to make 3 quilts, but he's already gotten 2,348 at last count, enough for 75 quilts.  I think the fact that Bonnie Hunter  reposted it may have had something to do with it.
He's taking blocks through the end of June. For a link to the directions, and Kevin's address, click HERE.

  1. Thank you so much for your contribution of these beautiful blocks! I can't wait to receive them! It is really crazy how the block drive has gone somewhat "viral", but, in a REALLY AWESOME way! One of my best friends grew up in Bensonhurst!
