Haven't had time to quilt this week. Things have been too busy around here, and the record heat - it was 99 degrees yesterday in the Twin Cities - has slowed everyone down. I certainly don't have the motivation to sit at a machine with a warm quilt folded on my lap as I continue quilting up the borders on MQ6!
Every July I replace the bed quilt at the Cabin with this red white and blue sampler that I made in the late 1990's.
The blocks are from Fast Patch by Anita Hallock, published in 1989. Anita has a very interesting way of piecing strips, then cutting them apart and re-sewing into checkerboards. Then cutting THOSE apart and re-sewing into half-square triangles. Well, the college Math major in me just had to try it. And it works!
