When Mom came to visit she brought with her a Patriotic Block swap that she participated in a few years back. It was an online swap coming from all sorts quilters from all kinds of places around the globe. Along with a swap come the differences in a finished size... Needless to say it became a challenge to put the blocks together. We never find enough time to do all that we set out to do during her two week visit. I have the first set of blocks assembled into a top (above) and the rest of the blocks ready to sew together (bottom). I used a white on white dot for the sashing with a blue/red/white check for corner stones between the sashing.
These will both be quilted by a long arm quilter in Southern Maryland who does charity works and donated to either a Veterans home or hospice house in her area. Someone deserving will definitely cherish these.
Happy Hump Day!
