    The recent inspiration received from the World War II quilts displayed at the Harvest of Quilts Show in Pine Bush, NY, has prompted me to dig into my stash and pull out all red, white and blue fabric. After organizing them into darks and lights, I began to visualize blocks of the varied hues and design. As of today I have constructed pieces of twelve 12inch blocks, all of different patterns. Pictured here are four completed blocks.
