The beginning of a Summer Quilt
This will be the third red, white and blue quilt I have made for me. The first I ended up donating to be raffled for the Bulldog rescue where we got Tink. The second was still only a top and has been picked by a friend for her new summer home on the lake. It's on it's way to the quilter as we speak. Maybe this one will actually be a keeper.
This quilt will be based on the 12 Blocks of Christmas from http://temeculaquiltco.blogspot.com/. They had a great sew along the end of Dec beginning of Jan.where each day you made a 3 1/2 inch block. Each day the new block contained one more piece. My version is here http://selinaquilts.blogspot.com/2012/01/12-days-of-christmas-blocks.html.
The difference this time around will be that the blocks are 9 1/2 inches not 3 1/2 before the sashing strips.
Block 4 -
The first 4 blocks with sashing strips. Opps, the bottom sashing strip on the 4 patch needs to bbe flipped around. Tomorrow is another day. Looking at it like this I am very pleased so far.
I also managed to get one more Swoon block done this week. That's 12 of 16 done. I have even picked out the fabrics for the remaining blocks just need to cut it up.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
