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!

They both look good. Thanks for giving me a hand. Wish we could have worked on them while I was there, but never enough time.
