Posts Tagged ‘Red white and blue quilts’

This week I have finished 53 blocks for my Patriotic string quilts.  I need 96 blocks to make two quilts.

When I was laying the blocks out on the table, I realised that they look more interesting with different red centre strips mixed together instead of keeping them in strict matching sets.  So I pulled out all my red strings, and now I have a good variety of colours and designs.

And, believe it not,  I am finally running out of patriotic strings!  Not to worry, though — I have lots more fabric from stash that I can cut.  This is going to be a great week for Stashbusting!  🙂

Also this week, I discovered We All Sew, a very nice sewing website that has lots and lots of free patterns and links to all kinds of sewing pages around the Internet.  And, if you scroll down the list to Favourite Sewing Blogs of the week, you might see someone you know (me!).  It’s a lovely compliment, and I am thrilled to bits.  Thank you, Erika!

Happy Quilting!
