You may decide to make the Quilts of Valor Split Star quilt shown in our group avatar. Here is some information about the quilt.
The quilt was designed by Mary B. Hayes of www.thangles.com. She has posted a free pattern for this quilt on that website. Just go there and click on Quilts of Valor in the left-hand panel. On the resulting page, you will find links to 2 pdf files, one for each page of the pattern. (I'm trying to figure out how to upload them.)
The pattern expects you to use the Thangles tool, and doesn't clearly spell out how to just cut and sew the patches for the blocks. If you would rather just cut the patches, the block's square patches are cut at 2 3/4" sq (finished size 2 1/4" sq). The triangles req cut from a square that is 3 1/8" sq which is then cut on the diagonal.
