Red, White and Blue Block Hop

Challenging is to say the least of my 130 piece block. I am working on Baltimore Liberty by P3designs. God bless the skill Pearl has in designing these intricate patterns. I did not quite have the skill to make it as recommended by the designer but here it is. I am only making 4 of the 12 inch blocks and the big center block of this quilt. (ps- I still have to stitch down my yellow stars centers) I used the Minick and Lauri Simpson line " Praire Paisley"
and will continue to use it for the remaining blocks. Other block hoppers today are: Cherrys Prairie Primitives Scrapbook-ChickADoodle Quilt Taffy In The Boon Docks tubakk
