A New Project!

This is the time of year when I always pull out any red, white and blue quilts to display around the house. This is also when I tend to think about making something in those colors. I've been working on some very simple blocks from a pattern called Woven Squares. It was originally published in Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts magazine, Winter 2016. It is also available on their website HERE.

For my version, I am using a single white print background, but went scrappy with the reds and blues. My quilt will be smaller, with 48 blocks instead of the 80 shown in the pattern. So far, half of my blocks are complete.

My goal for today is to finish making the remaining 24 blocks, and maybe start joining them together. This will probably become a Quilt of Valor, which means it will require a border or two to get it up to the required size.

I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!

  1. Nice block. It should make a great QOV. Hope you have a lot of sewing time today.

  2. I like your RW&B version a lot--funny how different fabric choices change the entire look of a piece...that dotty background is such a perfect foil for the scrappy RW&B's you're using...nice work hugs, Julierose

  3. Nice look with the woven design. Red, white and blue will make a great summer display quilt.

  4. Love the background fabric. It's going to make a very nice QOV. Hope you've been able to get the rest of the blocks all made.
