Patriotic Quarantine Quilt

To keep my self busy during the quarantine I pulled out all of my red, white and blue fabric and created this "Patriotic Quarantine Quilt". It came together fairly quickly although it's not quite finished due to the fact that I haven't been to the fabric store to buy batting and border/backing fabric!

It's time for the June Pin Challenge! The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month's challenge is all about summer or July 4th projects. The pin I chose was Scrap Jar Stars from Gigi's Thimble.

To make this quilt top I used a red, white and blue layer cake (40 - 10" x 10" pieces), a white jelly roll (2.5" strips) as well as a couple of fat quarters.
The directions on Gigi's Thimble are very well written and were easy to follow. Here is what each 12" block looks like before it is sewn together.

After each block is sewn together white strips are used between each block to create the quilt top. This quilt is made for a full sized bed so I used 25 blocks - 5 rows of 5. Once I add the border it will fit the bed a little better!
