Revolutionary Flags Update

It's been a battle!  Yes, I battled and battled the sickness and disease!  Not long after I posted my previous post

I succumbed to the sickness!!



  I had so much to do and was on a roll!
I so wanted to have an update post on my Flags quilt and be able to link up with
Lori's blog.
So, this is the first MOMENT I've stopped coughing long enough to post my update.

Here is my eagle block.  I got a late start on the Quilt Along and wasn't able to post my update 
on Sept. 1.
It's not complete as yet, just a few more stars to appliqué and I'll be able to sew the corner pieces to the eagle center part.
I decided to put the 13th star at the bottom of the eagle block.  The pattern shows only 12 stars, but
like some others I wanted the original 13 on there.  All the other blocks in the pattern
 have13 stars.

This is the center of the quilt and will be quite large when I sew it all together.  Just the eagle
part is a 22" square.



For September there were 4 tree blocks to complete.

20 1/2" x 10 1/2"
20 1/2" x 10 1/2"
20 1/2" x 10 1/2"

This tiny tree is not even 3" tall.
It will be appliquéd to another 20 1/2" x 10 1/2" block.
I forgot all about this block until I saw others posting their "4" trees.  Oops, I only had 3.

I REALLY like this quilt and am thankful to Lori from Humble Quilts for getting up the


This is my first quilt along and I think it will help me to push myself and stay on track
to get it done in a timely fashion…….and besides, I LOVE seeing all the different fabrics the others are using!

Ok…… back to my regularly scheduled coughing!!


  1. Yay!! Looking good - I like your different green fabrics! And I still don't have my stars on my eagle yet either. It will happen. Glad to hear you are on the mend, too.

  2. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! Your Flag blocks look great! Your eagle is beautful, I wish I d thought to add my 13th star in that big empty space. Also wonderful trees. However did you make the tiny tree so perfect? Is it prepped with freezer paper? Really nice.

    Yopur blog looks fun, I ll enjoy exporing it.

  3. Ugh! So sorry you got the sickness!! Thanks for interrupting your regularly scheduled couching to share your progress with us. It is looking great! I like the idea of the 13 stars--and love the plaid tree!

  4. Glad you are starting to feel better. I think you are right, QALs keep you in task!

  5. Great blocks. I hope you are feeling better. Sometime those coughs seem to linger on forever.

  6. I like where you put the 13th star! What great blocks!! Thanks for posting your link!!

  7. Oh drat about the coughing - hope it stops soon. Love the quilt - I didn't realize that the blocks were so big - that is going to be great when you are finished.

  8. Yay for finishes! Boo for coughing! Great job keeping up. I had to hunt for that little tree in the quilt!

  9. I'm coming down with something again too!! Crap gets in my way! Stay away from everyone so you can keep working on the quilts!
