Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!

So Easy and colorful to do a R,W, & B block. Simply cut out 4 stars from a 'cheat fabric' and added them using your favorite applique' method to a simple square in a square. I have really learned to use a stabilizer when machine appliqueing and found some rolls of paper on the Internet that the doctor's office uses. It is inexpensive and works great. Very striking the Red, White and Blue color combination!


Quilting can be easy or hard depending upon what you want. The easier the better are my thoughts. I will probably make them into place mats, just in time for Veterans' Day in November.

great idea! I always think of cheater fabric as something one doesn't cut, but I don't like that it's not pieced. I think I'll be looking at cheater fabric in a new way now--thanks!

Very nice blocks. Really like the striped stars and the star fabric corners.

It would be nice if you had "follow by email". It makes it easy to know when you have posted.
