Red, White and Blues Top

Even more progress on the Red, White and Blue quilt!  The quilt top is officially done!quiltpatriotic12Thankfully, it’s not quite as crazy as I feared it would be.  The white on white borders seemed to have calmed it down a bit!  Final dimensions are about 60 x 60.  So now for the back.  I have a piece of fabric that is red with tiny white pin dots that I picked up at Joann’s that will work nicely for the back.  However, it is only 60 x 40, leaving me 20 x 60 to fill in with scraps.  I have a few more squares, a little more white stars on white, a little more red with white polka dots, and then it’s back to raiding the stash.
