Progress has been made on the Red, White and Blue / Patriotic quilt from those wonderful squares I won from the Online Fabric Store!
The hardest part was making the tiny half square triangles when there isn’t enough fabric to trim to size. Any tips would be appreciated!
I had enough squares to make four blocks, about 18 inches each. Then I discovered that I didn’t have enough of any one fabric to continue the pattern. (You may have noticed that I am not the best planner!) So, time to raid the stash! I found some red with large white polka-dots and some white on white stars- perfect! I used the squares for the insides and then bordered them with the white fabric.
Four more coordinating blocks!
That gave me eight blocks- which I then realized was a really odd size for a quilt, no matter how you put them together. So, one more block would give me nine, which would work out a lot better, but of course I was out of white fabric! So out came the red for the center block.
I’m thinking that it’s going to need some special stitching in the center!
