Quilts of Valor, String block

The beginning of this year; our Guild started a BOM. Every month
our V.P. of Programs is choosing a member of the Board to pick
a block of their choice.
My block is for the month of March. I picked a scrappy block
because we have been doing QOV (Quilts of Valor) for nearly
two years and I have 2 bags (grocery size) filled with red, white
and blue scraps and I'm sure half of the ladies in my guild does
These blocks will be made into a QOV. Last month's block
was a "snowball" block. So many women made this block
that we have enough to make 2 quilts!
I found this pattern over at Mary's Quilts
The name of the block is "Amish Stripes and Strings".
