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.
