Red, White, and Blue quilt
I don't do much sewing or quilting in the summer. I spend as much time as possible outside loving on the flowers and vegetables. But sometimes, during the hot afternoons, I crank up the sewing machine. Yesterday, I completed this quilt top that I started in late April.
It has twelve large blocks, all different, but all made from half-square triangles. The red fabrics are all different, too. I used the different red strips pieced together to make the first border.
This block may be my favorite.
I have some other projects that I need to finish, so I don't know when I will be able to quilt this top. It will go on the "to be quilted" stack.
