We've had a couple of rainy days here in Podunk. A much needed rain. My garden is loving every drop. And I loved every drop also. It gave ME some much needed quality time in my Studio. This quilt was inspired by a much more complicated design that I'll share when the quilt top is complete. My test block below stitched up super quick using raw edge fusible applique.
As I was cutting the applique I noticed the salvage, the only words "MADE IN THE USA". Perfect for a patriotic quilt pattern! I love that almost all the fabric used in this quilt is American made. Yes I'm feeling a little Betsy Ross patriotic right now.
The border will be made using several different reds. For my thrifty quilters out there, you might recognize the Walmart fabrics. No fabric snobbery in Podunk.
30 blocks completed, and my quilty soul is feeling recharged. Now it's back to the garden.
