If you follow along on my blog, you know that I have finally started my Tribute To GW (George Washington) quilt. It has been floating around in my head for quite awhile. It started with wanting to do an eagle applique block, some George fabric and feeling the need to get these ideas out of my head. So today, I am starting to do some back basting on my eagle block. I am starting with some red stripes for the flag!
This afternoon I finished one end of my patriotic chevron quilt. I am big stitching 29 lines across the quilt and I have 17 complete with only 12 more to go. Over half way in a week! This quilt measures 72X72 so big stitching is definitely a way to get something done pretty quickly.
I will have my TATW quilt nearby and if I find enough energy it would be nice to finish row 17. It is half way complete as you can see in the picture. Last night I had to stretch out my arms to fold it up, so it is starting to really grow. I just love this project, each new fabric added changes it's look and it is a great way to use up some old fabrics in my stash.
