I started the quilt, below, in late 2008. I wanted it to look scrappy but I was short on RWB scraps, so I was using repeat fabrics and trying to put together different combinations of the same fabrics in the blocks, and it was very limiting. I put it away and went on to enhance my quilting skills on many other quilts since then. When I went into quilt shops, if I did not need something for the current quilt, I would look for fun red, white, and blue fabrics to add to my stash. I have discovered, this last week, that I truly have enough RWB to get on with finishing this quilt top. I have discovered, that my old skills (2008-2009) were a bit more sloppy than I am today, but I am going to use those old sections and just fill in the gaps with the new fabrics. The newer fabrics actually date through the entire time-frame after 2009 until day-before-yesterday. Yes, had to buy some red and white fabric, in Cambridge, on the way back from Council!
