I started this one at Ruth's Stitchery in January for "Quilts of Valor" day. I have enough blocks put together to make a lap quilt, or a quilt just the right size for a "rack" on an aircraft carrier!
The pattern I'm using is from Cozy Quilts. It's called "Stars from Stripes." What a great way to use red and blue 2.5" strips!
Here is my quilt on the design wall. I will use the HSTs cut from the blocks for the middle border.
Hope I have enough of the blue outer border fabric!
I always light a blue candle for important "Navy days," such as the day the GW puts out to sea. I have one burning today because it's Memorial Day, and I want to honor all Sailors who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
