I had these blue-bordered sixteen patch blocks left over from this quilt. Yeah, sometimes I get carried away. Anyway, I did not have any more of this blue fabric, but I did have an idea.
I also had lots of 2 1/2" strips in red and beige leftover from this quilt. It seemed to me a good idea to sew some of them together in segments.
And this is what I've come up with so far. I'm using a different blue for the cornerstones, but I think it will work. The lady at the USO asked for patriotic colors and I think this will fit that request.
I've also done a lot more cutting of red, white and blue strips that will grow into more quilts.
There have also been some blue and white star blocks assembled that will play along with other units. It will be fun to see what happens. Yes, I'm muddling. Frequently. But I have fun with it, and that's definitely a good thing! I'm thankful to have something useful to do that (sometimes) keeps me out of trouble.
I'm also thankful for flowers. There are a lot of them blooming outside right now, but these little African violets are in my kitchen window and they make me smile, even while I'm washing dishes.
I hope there is plenty to make you smile, because you know - a merry heart doeth good like a medicine! Proverbs 17:22
Hugs and kisses,
