This did not start out patriotic at all. Even thought it DID turn out that way. Sort of. I bought the Fat Quarters from Connecting Threads WAY back when, with my Father In Law in mind. He loves Blue.
That is the unfinished version. I didn’t get real good pictures of it finished!! Except this..
I put a pocket in this….Father In Law likes to keep his feet warm when he’s in the recliner!
The kids personalized it.
This poor quilt was supposed to be just big stars. No stripes. But I stopped sewing with 6 blocks left. When I got back to it, I FORGOT that I had already hacked of the fat Quarter to make it square. Oops. SO I had to add the log cabin-ish piece to get them up to size. And you know what?? I LOVE IT!!
There is no OOPS in quilting—-simply an opportunity to do something different!!
BrownEyed Boy loves it too!!
peace and pieces,
