Design Wall Monday 11/12/12

Happy Veteran's Day to all, and a huge thank you to those who have served our country.  It seems appropriate that all the blocks on my design wall right now are red,white & blue.  

There is a Scrappy Trip Around the World block drive going on at Alycia's.  The blocks go together very quickly, and they will be put together into Quilts of Valor.  I have 10 blocks ready to send to her.  I have been playing with ideas for a whole quilt or two from this block pattern, but this group will be mailed off tomorrow.

My other patriotic looking project is the blocks-of-the-week by Barbara Brackman called Grandmother's Choice.  I'm not wild about some of these blocks, but I am determined to keep up with making each week's block (sometimes with minor changes.)  They will definitely look better together with some sashing.  These may become a Quilt of Valor too.

Check out all the beautiful projects on Design Wall Monday at  Patchwork Times.  



  1. I love the scrappy trip! It is on my list of to do's.

  2. beautiful RWB quilts and love the scrappiness

  3. Oh darn... you just reminded me I should have gotten my blocks in the mail to Alycia. And, I need to make several more. Now I probably won't get them in the mail until Thursday. Yours look great. And, I like the variety of of Barbara Brackman's blocks.
