Patriotic Finish

Just in time for the 4th of July I have my red, white and blue quilt finished.  This was a block swap that was done back in 2010 (I think)....maybe even earlier.  We all sent the cut out pieces to our other swap members, along with the instructions,  and then we sewed the blocks together ourselves.  I really enjoyed doing the swap this way because 1/4" seams can be so different!!!

I finished the quilt top up and it remained hanging in the closet until this month.  It was fun to finish it up and it will make a nice addition to the patriotic holiday decorations.
