Patriotic Prim

I found a little time to piece the center of 
It's a Grand Old Flag
by Geoff's Mom Pattern Co.
You can find the pattern here.

I plan to do the applique in a combination of wool and cotton.  

We just returned from a refreshing week at Lake Tahoe. I had forgotten how beautiful the area is! The last time I was there was when I was in college.  I was a maid at the Blue View Lodge in King's Beach...oh, the memories!
As you can see, I was not the only one who enjoyed themselves.
Good times!

The star blocks look so festive. I love the idea of doing the border in a combo of wool and cotton. Look forward to seeing it!

Some wool applique will finish your Grand Old Flag beautifully.
Your grand daughter is growing beautifully and lucky you sharing so much time with her. They grow up too quickly don't they?

I have seen this pattern and the applique border makes the quilt. Wool a good choice for it as it will look good and take less time than needle turn applique.
