Quilts of Valor (QOV) Challenge – Ideas for Layouts

Are you getting excited about the QOV Challenge? I have already started thinking about possible quilt layouts. There are minimum and maximum sizes listed in the guidelines, so I pulled out my trusty EQ7 and started playing around. The minimum and maximum sizes for the quilts are:

Minimum Size: 55 x 65 inches

Maximum Size: 72 x 90 inches

Points for the Challenge giveaways are awarded by points calculated based on a 12 inch finished block size. The reason for that is that if you don’t make a complete quilt top, you may still enter by submitting quilt block(s) that are 12-1/2 inches unfinished. If you are making a complete quilt top or finished quilt, it can be made with any size block you choose.

Here are some possibilities if you choose to make 12 inch finished blocks.

Layout 5 x 6 blocks, 12 inch block


Layout 3 x 4 blocks, 12 inch block


Layout 4 x 5 blocks, 12 inch block

  1. I am looking forward to this. I’m looking through blocks and fabric I have here to see what will be the next one I do!

  2. the first layout (5×6) calculates out to 74″ wide. Doesn’t that exceed the maximum size? Just wondering.
