Stars and Stripes

My Schnibble Lincoln (queen sized) quilts calls for 41 stars:




and 80 strip blocks.  I cut all my strips and tested everything by making 4 blocks.




This picture doesn't give a very good view of the variety of fabrics - here are 20 of the stars.  Slightly more than half have the same light colored background.  For the rest, I used various fabrics from the line - Sweetwater Pure.




I've an appointment with my LAQ at the end of August.  I think I'll make it.


I've been enjoying the Think Christmas blog hop and today's day five of the!  Grab a cup of Mulled Cider and visit these talented quilters:
