    Red, White and Blue

    Red, White and Blue

    Red, White & Blue
    This quilt came together through a mini-group project, and it took almost a year to finish. Each member decided on an individual theme, and put fabrics they wanted used in a box, and each month we would make a 36 in. strip in the fabric choice of whatever box of fabric they had at the time. We would switch boxes each month, and by the time everyone had exchanged with all the members…..we had enough strips to put together a quilt. It was then up to us to make something great out of what everyone else had contributed. All the quilts were completely different and it was a really fun result. I chose a patriotic theme, and supplied the background fabric , and a few other ‘s so there would be continuity throughout the quilt. We could add our own fabric also, as long as it fit the theme of the person we were making it for. It was a lot of fun, and each month we showed what we had accomplished as it went along.

    Mine ended up very large, and it is a favorite of mine, as I have memories of all my friends.
