July OMG Progress Update

All my blocks completed                                        What finished project will be.

My Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal (OMG) for July was to complete the piecing of the Stars and Stripes quilt. I purchased this as a kit from Craftsy. I am happy to say that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The pattern called for 120 blocks of 16  2″ squares of assorted red and white fabrics and 64 blue and white star blocks. These star blocks have 256 flying geese. I have finished all the blocks and this is the most time consuming part of the project. Now I will begin working on joining all the blocks into rows and add the borders. Whew, it as been a time consuming project but I have enjoyed seeing it come together. The cutting was a little boring and I ended up with a blister but it was worth it.

I will post the finished quilt top soon.

Thank you so much for reading.
