A tool challenge for QOV

I just have a few minutes between shows and found a picture for you. I probably showed it earlier, but read on.
I just got back from teaching at Nebraska State quilt conference. What a bunch of great friendly quilters. I enjoyed the other teachers too. Again I taught my Thirtysomething and Infinite Stars workshops.  They are probably my two most requested classes and I enjoy them immensely. I rarely teach a class where everyone is making the same project and the girls are always "wowed" by all the options and how easy they are to make. If your guild is looking for a program and or workshop that teaches technique not just a project, then give me a call. I'd love to visit with you.
Next I am on my way to the Machine Quilting  show in Oconomowoc WI www.MToday.com.  Quilter's Rule asked to use my tool for next year's Quilts of Valor challenge. That means I had to come up with a quilt pattern to sell that uses the tool. See the details  http://www.mqtoday.com/competitions/qriTool/2013-Rules%20&%20Form%20Complete.pdf   Keep in mind these are this year's rules, but next years will likely be the same with the exception of using my tool.
 This is the quilt I chose, but I had to add a row to bring it up to the required size for QOV.  And though this quilt is not Red, White and Blue, they can still use it. What colores will yours be?  You need not use the pattern for your challenge quilt, - just the tool. Be creative. The gals in my class in Nebraska could show you how. I could too for that matter.

looks lovely with the centres of the blocks alternating. It's in my plans to finally add a border to mine this year and get it finished.

Gayle, it was great to meet you in Nebraska! With the help of my sister-in-law, I finished my top before I came home to Connecticut. I'd love for you to see it!
