Hi Cuties! This pattern is Brightly by Cluck Cluck Sew, made in Red White Blues for, you guessed it, another veteran! I love this easy pattern because I think it packs a good punch! And I love the ‘chain’ look. I made it 60x84 inches and Thursday it goes to our QOV quilter. I will probably bind it with whatever color she uses for the back.

Tomorrow I am cutting more squares for an on point quilt. Wednesday I have Ashley’s 3 kids all day. She has decided to work one day a week at the hospital since she can make more that one day than driving a school bus all week. I’m glad she’s using her degree that she worked and went to college for but sometimes they have to figure things out for themselves. So as it stands I will have the kids every Wednesday. I have my own suction pump for Avery now and Gus and Nora are no trouble, just have to fix them something to eat. Maybe p’nut butter & jelly sandwiches-lol My hubby would really go for that I’m sure-lol-not really.
Also Wednesday, Angie will be picking up her Mexican Star quilt I finished. I am anxious to see what she thinks.
Well, off to bed soon, ….maybe. We have a man coming in the morning to buy our camper, so will have to rise early.- ❤️Toogie

For Patti and whoever else may be interested. Here are the two blocks. You just alternate one then the other to get the size you need across and down. The blocks are 12.5 inches before sewn into rows. I have 5 blocks across by 7 blocks down, so 35 total and measurement of 60inches across by 84 inches down.

Thank you , yes it’s a nice pattern.

This is beautiful and you say easy? I will have to check out the site Cluck Cluck Go since someone mentioned this to me a month ago. I can not even pick out the main block of where it starts and ends. You are the Master. You are very gracious and know the Veteran's really appreciate their quilt.

Another beautiful Toogie creation. It is wonderful hearing that many of your outstanding quilts are gifts for others

Thank you C, I wish I would have kept a record of how many QOV quilts I’ve made. A lady asked me the other day and I couldn’t give her a number. Unless, I took a picture and I have tried to remember to, I don’t know.

toogie by toogie edited 12 Sep 2023

I have just counted the pictures, of just QOV quilts, on my phone. I have made 33 for sure, for veterans, since I joined in 2019. I need to check on my computer but at least 33. I’ve also made 43 for family and CASA, according to my phone pictures. It really doesn’t matter. I guess it’s what you call ‘useless information’.-lol

No, sweetie. It is a way to quantify the selfless love and time and skill you have shared with others. Hang on to those pictures - they are love passed on.

Great job on this one! I’m sure this pattern would work well for many color ways, but your patriotic theme looks super.

Now you sound like my friend Sharon. She said she has seen this pattern in a lot of color ways but this red white and blue is beautiful. Glad you like it too. I say you can’t beat red white and blue! Thanks!

Thank you for the countless hours you have invested in these beautiful quilts. I know you are a spouse of a Veteran and know how valued they are to the recipients.Enjoy your time with the grands and give them all a Cute hug for us. Please do share with us Angie’s reaction when she sees the special quilt.

toogie by toogie 12 Sep 2023

I will know tomorrow Angie’s reaction, so I’ll let you know. I think she will be pleased, at least I hope so. Nora and I plan for her to sew tomorrow, too. I am cooking today, so we can have leftovers tomorrow, in order to sew. Thanks

Sewing with a grandchild sounds bliss

toogie by toogie 19 Sep 2023

I ended up not having them that day. I am hoping Nora comes Monday to sew.

by graceandham 12 Sep 2023

Oh, Toogie, this is outstanding even among all the Toogie quilts. What a great look.

I really like this one too, thank you. I have been wanting to try this pattern and always forgot when it was time to make another quilt. This time I made a note, with 2 on my to do list, this one and another.

Some of my grands are grown and some are younger, so I understand what you mean. Love them all! Glad you appreciate the quilt, thanks.
