TOO BUSY TO BLOG!

Last week was busy with a lot of sewing and also looking for a truck for our new camper. I got the flag quilt quilted and ready to bind. I love patriotic quilts!
I went to the LQS to get the February BOM and amazed myself when I got home by getting caught up on the ones I hadn't done yet. There is only one month to go, so I now have 11 finished. I am doing both the pastel and bright, so I'll have two quilts when finished. My GD has dibs on the bright one! She saw some of the blocks when she was here for Christmas.



I also finished two baby quilt tops and will be layering them this week so I can get them quilted soon.

Tomorrow I will be posting my blocks for the APQ bloggers swap. When I started blogging over 2 years ago, it was on the web site for American Patchwork and Quilting magazine (allpeoplequilt.com). When that blog ended, many of the bloggers decided to do a friendship quilt swap. We got to know each other on the blog and wanted to keep in touch!

I love the skinny star border around your flag quilt. That must have been fussy to cut and get on there, but it looks good. The BOM blocks are great, too. Lots of variety there since you're doing two sets!

You really have been busy! All of your blocks look perfect and they are all bright & cheerful. The patriotic quilt is unique--looks like it may have taken awhile. Mary

I like the use of all the strips of reds & blues for the flag quilt.

Gosh Ruth, you make some of the best patriotic quilts I have seen and this is a humdinger! Your blocks for the BOM are fabulous - love the variety of fabrics used. Looking forward to seeing your blocks for the APQ Swap. Cheers Ann :-)
