Quilts of Valor #3 – Quilt Pattern Autitions

So I would really like to do some ruler work on this quilt because I think it would really accent the block shapes nicely. Like echoed lines (ok, so I did the lines free hand, on the quilt I would use a ruler. Believe me!).

I like all 3 concepts. And since all the blocks are different, I think I’ll mix it up on the quilt and do all different feathers too. So that works for the backgrounds on the blocks. But what about inside the odd shapes?
