One of the fabrics I used in my quilt vortex project is very appropriate for today...Canada Day! We are finally having some sunny weather after several gray and rainy days. There are plans for a family bbq and fireworks later on today to celebrate this wonderful country that we call home.
I spent some time last night sewing and pressing and trimming on my vortex quilt. I now have several large blocks made from my scraps, which, with borders, should make a nice sized lap quilt. I am quite sure that I have something in my stash for the borders and backing for this quilt... I have used up lots of scraps for this quilt but still have lots more. I may need to make another one of these quilts sometime to use up some more scraps!
Here are my blocks on the design floor:
I will have to check in at Crazy Mom's blog today to see what she suggests I do next. None of the blocks are the same size. I suspect I will be cobbling them together somehow into a quilt top!
I took this picture last night in my backyard... Any guesses as to what it is????
Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian readers!
