Cosmic Valor blocks done!

When I left off at last Monday's "Move It Forward Monday" post, I had big plans to get the two Quilts of Valor (QOV) projects to the top stage by the end of the week or over the weekend. 

That is until I was sidelined by the worst head cold I've experienced in a long while!  DH had it the week before and wouldn't you know it, as soon as he got better, it knocked me for a loop!  It took up residence in my head Wednesday evening (thank goodness I had  done the laundry that afternoon!) and I wound up in bed for pretty much all of last Thursday and Friday.  I was able to sit up out of bed by Saturday and on Sunday felt well enough to go back to the machine -- but only long enough to stitch one "Cosmic Valor" block!  Between stitching together the "parts" of the block and then partial seaming all those parts together, each one takes me about an hour to construct.

However, yesterday and today I was finally feeling fairly normal again so focused on finishing up the rest of the blocks (I had sewn a few more before I got sick):

Eighteen blocks all done!
Whew!  Next step, cutting setting triangles and constructing the center.  Still have the borders on "Combat Gratitude" to work on as well.  Maybe I can finish the tops by the end of this weekend?
