Red, White and Blue Stripes AND Next Project

I finished the Red, White and Blue Stripes quilt after work yesterday.  The binding was put on by machine so it only took about an hour and a half.  Now I just need one more quilt for this family.
and had time on my hands.

Since I had not basted the final quilt and had time on my hands, I cut the "Crazy About Stars and Hearts" pattern by Buggy Barn.  I wanted to take the lazy route and just use red, white and blue fabrics.  Had even pulled the FQs from my stash. However, after a silent reprimand, I went and pulled the patriotic yardage I'd been collecting for this quilt.  Knowing I wanted to make this quilt, I'd been collecting different patriotic prints for years so it was no excuse to take a short cut now.  Took me about three hours to cut a FQ portion off the yardage, iron and cut the blocks.  I even got two blocks done.  Now I want to sew more blocks and forget quilting the next family quilt.  It's always a delima around here.

  1. Now THAT is a very cool quilt block!

  2. Love it. I have the pattern. Must get to work on it. No excuses, I even have the fabrics.
    Nice work!

  3. This looks interesting! Like a stack and cut with freezer paper or something. I love how your blocks are coming out.
