WIP Wednesday

Have you seen the movie, "The King's Speech?"  Remember how the King learned he could speak without stammering if he was swearing?  Well -- that's what happened in my sewing room today, and without a stammer.

I am making Nancy Mahoney's American Valor quilt for one of the sailor's on my son's ship, the carrier USS George Washington.  I  wanted to use the same fabrics as in the pattern, so I spent hours on etsy and ebay finding the exact same Red Rooster American Valor fabrics.  But for some reason I didn't order enough of one of the fabrics!  Rats!  Big hairy rats!  So when I started cutting the secondary blocks, I ran out of the cream fabric. Luckily I found another yard available online.

This is what I got done today: 

Well, I did get one block completed:

This wasn't supposed to be a "slow quilting" project, but it is turning out that way.  I've linked to Lee's Work in Progress Wednesday (click on that button over there on the right), so you can see what other quilters accomplished today.
