Here is a quick look at the Patriotic Salute quilt that I am making for my dad for his 60th birthday. I sewed six 2-1/2" strips together to resemble flags. I thought it would be easier to sew them together in 42"+ blocks before cutting them into smaller 12" x 12" blocks. I will do that tomorrow as well as cut my sashing.
I also need to cut my star appliques, but I haven't thought that out yet. My goal is have the top (minus applique) completed before Sunday.
