Red White and Blue Quilt

My next step is partially done.  I've sewn blocks of 4 matching HSTs together; 42 blocks, so far.  I'm still winging it and didn't want to go all crazy and sew everthing together without a firm plan.

I had to pay attention when I did the blocks with the stripes.  They really looked wacko, if all the stripes didn't go the same way!

This fellow was visiting my garden, and was kind enough to pose for me.  I haven't participated in Macro Monday for a long time.  Today, I'm linking up with Lisa for Macro Monday.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. A great start and some fun looking blocks! The cricket totally reminds me of Jiminy Cricket
