Midweek Makers 285

Welcome to Midweek Makers - the place to share your quilt projects, in-progress or finished. Either way, we want to see!

My share this week is an in-progress project.

Yes, I've inadvertently gone down the path toward a patriotic wall hanging, though I certainly didn't intend to. I think the seed was planted last Tuesday, after decorating the house with my red, white and blue table runners and quilts. It was then that I realized that Fireworks is my lone patriotic wall hanging. Someday I'll have to fix that. 

A few days later, I started testing some new HST dies sent to me by Crafters Edge. Randomly pulling out navy blue and light aqua fabrics, I just started cutting three different sizes of triangles, making about a dozen HST's of each size.

I played with a few different layouts, tucking some away for future development, as there wasn't enough fabric to finish them. Then it happened. I pulled out that blue star print and headed down the patriotic path. The first picture above is testing a layout, with the final top probably a bit different due to fabric constraints - again. Once I get it all worked out, I'll have a new wall hanging to share - stay tuned!

Though my project is in-progress, I'm showcasing some finishes seen at last week's party.

Grace and Peace Quilting showed off her finished glam-clam quilt-along projects,

and Quilting Gail quilted different fills in this Paintbrush Studio panel - how cute is that?

  1. I love how that wall hanging came together for you -- almost as if Lady Liberty was whispering in your ear like a muse!

  2. I like your start on a patriotic wall hanging! I completely understand the fabric issues, too. I'm sure it will work out great!

  3. Thank you for including my Glam Clam quilts, Susan! I always enjoy checking out this quilt party!!!

  4. Lovely Liberty Wall hanging. Well done

  5. How do you like the Crafter's Edge dies? It looks like they aren't as bulky as the dies I use. Your Miss Liberty is making progress. I haven't been thinking of getting out the Patriotic quilts and decorations -- but the 4th is really soon! Must get on it.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
