I joined the Flags of the Revolution quilt along over at Lori's blog. This is my first quilt along and guess what? First rattle out of the box I'm behind.
The quilt is in a book by Jan Patek published in 2009. I finally found a copy of the book and
started digging through my stash and discovered I had about 5 fabrics I
thought looked primitive-ish. This is my first primitive/patriotic style quilt and I just didn't have these
style of fabrics.
I finally got the fabric issue solved (maybe).
Isn't this a GREAT quilt!? I was really excited to get to it.
the squash was over flowing and the okra began to
jump up and down and demand my attention.
The bossiest of all this last week has been
black eyed peas!
Luuuuvvv me sum black eyed peas.
Seeing everyone's eagle blocks shared today at Lori's blog lit a fire in me to get my
black eyed peas finished up today. (at least those that were picked and ready, we have a friend who has a w-h-o-l-e field of peas so I can have as many as I want)
I finally made it upstairs for some fun fabric auditioning and play.
I think I have a plan.
I WILL get caught up with the others. The other ladies blocks are great and it's fun to see
the different variations of fabric used. Run over to LORI'S blog and have
a look see.
My thumbs are so sore from all the pea shelling I hope I can still hand appliqué!! Ha!
Thanks so much Lori!! I always wanted a patriotic style quilt and your little
quilt along has inspired me to finally sew one!!
