A few months back, I hit upon a Craigslist fabric hoard worth the 4 hour round trip. As I sorted the huge contractor bags, I kept the red, white, and blue (and some scraps of brown but that’s another day!). While most of the fabric went on to support three ladies with quilt ministries, I kept enough to make a red, white and blue quilt. I went with a disappearing nine-patch pattern for the blocks.
I bought the fabric for the sashing, border, and backing, but all of the blocks are from two generations of quilters. Scraps of holiday fabric, old cotton shirts. They kept everything.
I struggled with some haphazard leaves and curly-Qs until I saw a Kleenex box at bible study and felt inspired to straighten out my leaves. (Never know what you’ll learn at church, giggle!)
