Moving on...

While trying to keep my mind occupied on other things today.....I sat in my chair, in front of my machine...and pieced....

Old Glory

And even today, the Quiltmaker ScrapSquad posted a variation of the original of this pattern (Jen's rendition).

Now that I see it in a picture, I'm not a huge fan of all the lighter blue strips, but I still hope it can make for a nice QOV quilt.  I had to alter the borders; I didn't have enough of any one red in my stash to make the border as called for :(   
Karen of the Wisconsin QOV has put an all-call out for some quilts, so I am hoping to send out Star Harbor, Star Path and now Old Glory for her to use at some upcoming Wisconsin-area QOV presentations.  SORRY ALYCIA!!!! But know that I will be 6 quilts into my 12-challenge!

My self-set goal:  all three in the mail by this Friday.  Quilting to do on Old Glory, and binding to go on the other two.  Should be do-able .

I like this one! The stars really add alot of character. Glad some Wisconsin vets will be treated to your work!

Hope you have been able to relax a little. Quilting is just what you need, along with that glass of wine. Everything is going to be alright. Wow! 12 QOV! Good goal!

Never seen that pattern before, I like the different shades of blue, it looks great. Now is this 6 quilts of 12 a QOV challenge you have going on? or just finishing 6 of 12 quilts...I think you have already finished 12 this year anyway. I can't keep up with all your accomplishments.............
