    Just wondering if.....

    I was just wondering if anybody is working on anything to commemorate the 4th of July. I copied this pattern down a long time ago. I think from one that might have been posted here on this board that I think is pretty neat. I'm in the process of cutting my fabric now. WARNING! The drawing is crude. I plan to make it in (of course ) red, white and blue. What do you think?

    That's a wonderful idea and I love it!

    Years ago, I bought some beautiful fabrics, in dark red, navy, and off-white. At the time, I was just making blocks, so didn't get that much of them. For the past year, I've been watching for similar (go-together) fabrics, to make a r/w/b quilt. Still looking but haven't given up.

    My friend Terri is going to use 5 inch blocks and I think I'll use 2.5 inch blocks. She is going to make a table topper and I am going to make a quilt. I thought it would look neat in a smaller version and have several of them. I also think a bigger one will look pretty cool too. Anybody else want to join in and maker their own version? It down't have to be red white and blue. I think any color scheme would be neat.

    I wanna play! I'm not working on anything right now so I think I will join you! I've got some nice americana red, off white and blue fabrics. I'm going to do 2.5" also. Should we work on them and then meet back here to show them off?

    I could find some R,W & B, but not the time. May I ask for future reference why is block 5,4 a HST? My eyes keep jumping there.

    I have a R,W & B wreath that was on my door all the years my son was in the Marine Corps that now is used at this time of year. I also have a T-shirt, but nothing quilted yet.

    Looks like a very nice block. I have several outfits that I've made in the past, and am quilting some things for the Oregon Quilting TV show next week.

    I think you are talking about a block within the star which should be a square, not a hst, right? At first I thought that there were also 7 squares within the outer frame which should be hst's, but now I see that's a square frame which intertwines with the frame on point.. Very nice pattern!

    Okay, love the concept however, the block in the 4th row down and 4th from the left as you look at it should be a full blue square not a HST, I think. I just noticed that one. Maybe that is the way you want it and it is your quilt ;-).

    I think when I copied it, I made a mistake. I'll try to post again with the right colors.

    That is the very popular Labyrinth pattern. I made this one recently as a duvet cover. It's a neat pattern. I think it will be marvelous.

    I knew it would be pretty in other colors. I just love it.

    I started mine last night and just finished it! I used 2 1/2" squares, added a 1" border and bound it. It is big enough for a table topper so it will be going to the MIL. The colors in the picture aren't true. It is an off white and primitive red and blues.
