In honor of our patriotic duty to vote, I finished my red, white, and blue plaid star quilt. It now has a new bright red binding, and finished at 61.5 inches square. I would like to make a Quilts of Valor quilt someday, and checked with their requirements and this one is slightly too small. I will make another one and add a border. More incentive to get these UFOs out of the way.
Here is a picture of the stars and stripes in the quilting:

I have worked on several smaller projects this week too. One was to finish a block that I found partially finished for a Jane Stickle indigo and shirting UFO. I found the partially completed block while looking for something else——and finished it up, and put it with the completed blocks for this project. Every little bite of the elephant gets me closer to getting the UFOs completed, right?
What are you doing this week? I saw several quilts on your blogs this last week that made me want to start a new project. For now, I am standing firm in my resolve, but I am weakening. I do like the temptations though! Please keep them coming and link up with a picture of your current project. My only request is that you talk up Design Wall Monday on your post and also provide a link in your post that links back to this particular blog post.
