What are you most proud of? A friend send me fabric she was tired of which included some solid red. It shouted use me to connect all of those blocks you have. I never saw those blocks as a red white and blue quilt until the red sashing tied them all together. It seems my taste in quilts runs to high contrast and bright. This one is no exception. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's like a BOM, (Block of the Month) quilt. There were many made in between 10 of these blocks. To make a quilt with 12 blocks I went back to my scraps and stitched together 2 more. It was fun, and who would believe that it wasn't planned out ahead of time. Go with the flow and use up those spare leftovers.
