An Early Red, White & Blue Quilt

Sew We Quilt and Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts have joined forces to create a Red, White and Blue Blog Hop.  Each day 5 or 6 blogs will have a red, white & blue block to share.  There may be giveaways.  My day is July 11th.  The complete schedule can be found at Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts.

I started working on my block almost immediately when I signed up for the hop.  I use EQ7 to design blocks and quilts.  If you don’t have EQ, check out their website: http://www.electricquilt.com/.

EQ let me play with lots of different blocks and I ultimately came up with two blocks and this quilt:

It uses these two 10″ blocks set on point:

I would love to make this quilt.  But look at all those seams in the middle of the first block.  I couldn’t get them to match when I made my sample block.  So, I went back to the drawing board.

You’ll have to come back on July 11th to see what I came up with.  I think it’s as good, if not better than this quilt — and there’s no paper piecing involved!

While you are waiting, check out today’s blogs:
