The Internet was down yesterday until late last night. Instead of browsing blog sites (or cleaning like I should have done) I decided to sew. There was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day program that I saved off a while ago with a quilt I really liked. It is called Firecracker and was really pretty in red, white and blue. I played the program again and shopped my stash for some fabrics. Then I cut my strips 2.5x6.5 for the red, white and blue. The corner triangles are from a 5.5 inch square cut on the diagonal. I was able to make these 24 blocks yesterday. They need trimming up and then I can sew them into a top. I'm thinking some plain borders around it and it will be a completed lap quilt top sometime soon. This has a potential home for an injured solider that I heard about on Wednesday - my step FIL's grandson. Hopefully he is doing OK and is in route to Germany and then can make the trip home. I'd recommend this if you need a quick quilt. I have a feeling I'll make another one for picnics out on the lawn for the kids.
