Hello Friends, I hope your week got off a great start. Thank you for stopping by to visit today.

FIRST OFF, I have been tidying up my sewing room — and came across SCADS of half-square-triangles (dog ears) that I had trimmed off from previous quilts, with the intention of sewing them to make a scrappy happy HST quilt! I have to face the reality – chances are I will probably not get to that in the near ...

Patriotic Splendor Quilt :: A Finish from Alamosa Quilter

 Sometimes a fabric line arrives and I get an idea for a project really quickly. That was the case with this collection.

Patriotic Splendor Quilt

The panel is great as are all the coordinates. I used a black Grunge for the border around the panel and the binding. The pattern calls for 7 fat quarters but I only got 5 coordinates so I added two other patriotic themed fabrics from the shop to round out the quilt.

For the back I used yet another patriotic themed fabric from my shop.

It turned out so well that I kitted it up. Many of my ...
