Although I am not celebrating in any special way today, I am proud to be an American.
I am thankful and proud to honor the courageous men and woman who have served in all branches of our military. Because of you, I am able to enjoy freedom.
It's Monday, and that means it's time to show what's on my design wall.
Since it's July 4th, I've pulled out some old star blocks that I have and I'm going to work on finally getting them into a quilt.
I have twenty-four of these 6" friendship star blocks and they've been sitting in my tub of shame (A.K.A. - UFO tub) for a very long time. I'm playing with options, but I think I'm going to frame each block with some of this red and them put them together with a light background fabric. If I've done my math correctly, I should be able to make this work and have it fit the requirements for a Quilt of Valor. I'm going to double check my math, be sure I have enough of all the fabrics and get moving on this right after I finish the small quilt that is up on the design wall right now.
I've been busy on a couple of projects that are kind of secret. Since I said kind of secret, I'm sharing one with you, but not why it's being made. Sorry; you'll have to wait until next week for that info. I gave a sneak peak at another one of these projects the other day when I posted this picture.
Are you sewing this July 4th?
Check out what other quilters have on their design wall.
