    I made this from mostly scraps and It was so fun to do, my friend Laura loved it. Laura even sent me a photo of it hanging in her new house.
    Seems like a fitting photo to share on this patriotic day.

    What a neat idea! Something to consider with all the red, beige, and blue fabrics that I have in my stash of leftovers!

    What a gorgeous quilt, very patriotic. Were those blocks pieced? If so, that's a labor of love, and I'm sure she loves it.
