Quilt Ladies Handmade Red, White and Blue Part 5

Pin It
The fabric in this quilt became so soft after it's recent washing. I'm thinking maybe cotton batting for this one.



Before getting this ready for quilting, I decide to put it on the bed and see.



Simple pattern, Simple colors and all fabric from my fabric stash

I Love IT !!
And it helped with my stress of summer 2011

Blue, White and Red Part 4

Pin It
I sat the White and Blue strips into Red rows.

I wash all my fabric when I bring it home, but I felt before starting to quilt this I better wash is again.



With a gentle soap and cold water, I washed, twice.  I think this is the first time, I've ever done this, but the fabric was from my stash and I had to be sure before starting to quilt.


I'm having clothes line problems. SO, I put in on the rail and over lawn chairs.   No red running, no red bleeding.  The white has turned very soft.  Loving it !

Blue, White and Red - Part 1

Pin It
 Life around our neighborhood is getting back to a bit of normal.  Starting mid-May the Missouri River went crazy here,  flooding done by nature and dams.

It was recommended that we move everything out of lower levels, our basements because of ground water. I've learned so much about elevations, water levels, ground water, and water per foot.
About a week ago, we had the basement carpet put back down and moved everything from the first floor back to the basement. Stress has been in the air, we are very lucky and happy to have no problem with our home as many in the area and region have and still have.  

I needed a project that was simple and easy, to keep me sane??
I pulled out fabric I had, Red, White, Blue and started cutting.



These squares are cut size 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"  and form a 4-patch block




This is cut 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" to form a 9-patch block

I'm enjoying my project !

I didn't even take pictures as I did this one, keep watching !
