Splendid sampler progress
These blocks mean a lot to me. At the time I started this batch (yes, I had a couple of false starts, including some blocks that are just plain missing!), there were multiple attacks against the US...terrorist stuff. I decided to make my quilt out of red, white and blue, standing for the United States. Additionally, and this is more personal yet...I was called in one day to help in the operating room, to help with an emergency bypass surgery, at my work. This surgery saved this man's life. I was wearing a dark blue scrub jacket, that got caught on the C-arm x-ray in the operating room and tore beyond repair. So? I cut it up, and that is the dark blue in my sashing. This quilt means a lot to me for another reason...my dear friend Lyn is making it too, and it is a connection to her, over the miles and continents.
Did you notice that Bonnie Hunter announced the colors in her Mystery quilt? Please see her post here!!
Have a great day, everyone!!
