Patriotic quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my first time using a specialty ruler - now I am using it in everything! I really love it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a sample block, first. I had some trouble getting them to match up and I wasn't happy with some of my fabric choices and had to replace them.

What you will need

  • Red/White blue fabric stash

This is lovely. It was only when I read your "inspiration" paragraph that I realised that there were snowball blocks. I had to look really hard into the photograph to see how the design is made up. I love the overall design and the colours you've chosen. Well done!
sfgrrl answered:
Thanks Pat ... it's nice the colors work in the UK as well! (p.s. I loved the British men's gymnastic team!!)
