This weekend I began a new project that I have been wanting to start for some time now. It's a quilt for my entryway quilt hanger for the 4th of July! The pattern is called Old Glory from Yellow Creek Quilt Designs.
My quilt will look nothing like this! I'm using a combination of reds from French General and blues from The Morris Apprentice by Barbara Brackman. The setting fabric is French General Oyster Clochette.
I got five blocks done over the weekend and many more to go! The setting fabric is all the same, it just looks a little darker on one side of this photo. Most blocks of the red are done in 3's, but using different reds.
Here is a closeup of a spools block.
And a closeup here of the Nine in Nine Patch block. I'll continue to show you my progress along the way!
In addition to sewing I just had to try this recipe for Gingerbread Biscotti from April over at Dimples and Delights. My drizzling is a little globby in spots, but does not detract from the great taste of these delightful treats!
We'll be traveling beginning tomorrow, but I'll try and have a post or two from the road.
