The Quilt of Valor Tumbler Totes will be patterned after a recent youtube.com video tutorial by Jenny of Missouri Quilt Company:


We will use charm packs in the medium QOV Tumbler Tote that are used in this youtube.com video of Jenny's however, we will be using my 6" AccuQuilt Go! Tumbler dies to cut fabrics to create the large QOV Tumbler Tote for the First Place Prize.  As soon as we get these QOV Tumbler Totes created, we will be updating this post to share pics.  These QOV Tumbler Totes will be 'one-of-a-kind', created specifically for this competition - May the Best Competitor WIN!
