Did you have fun doing the Blogger Girls II Block of the Month? I sure did! Thanks to Monique for inviting us to take part so I could create another one of her designs. Since I did the blocks from her collections of fabric and in the red, cream, blues and greens it seems fitting that it would be complete just in time for our 4th of July weekend. How cute this would look on the front porch swing. Oh, yeah one problem…It is in the front window of the store and not on my porch. Guess I will have to display it for everyone to see this weekend of freedom.
If you look close you can see that I finished my version a little different than the instructions. I left out the corner sections of the monthly blocks because I wanted the stars in the alternate blocks to pop out and I finished the inner border with a 2 1/2" strip instead of the 1 1/2" border.
Be sure to visit all the other bloggers to see how they finished their quilts and I hope you will share your quilts with us as well!
