4th of July

 
Happy 4 th of July! I made this quilt a few years ago to contribute to the Quilts of Valor Foundation. The mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting quilts.
 
Today I made 3 blocks to contribute to Calico Cutters Quilt Guild’s goal of 50 blocks this month. All of the blocks the members make will be given to the Tel Hai quilters to make into soldier quilts.
I’ve never actually used this method of sewing a large square to make half square triangles before.
 
It was easy and fast. I like it better than sewing the squares individually. Especially when you need 8 HST’s of the same two fabrics.
 
A trim of the “dog ears” and you have nice, accurate triangles.
 
 
Three cheers for the red, white and blue!
