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.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy – these blocks are so pretty! I didn’t realize Sami had her own stash of fabrics. I bet her quilt won’t be quite as lovely as these blocks though. Can’t wait to see it coming together. ~smile~ Roseanne
