B-2 Blue Flag Mid Month 2 Progress

Month Two - Blue Flag Mid Month 2 Progress
It is so fun to see the variety of fabric choices and techniques.  Stitchers have used every applique technique - and all kinds of fabrics.
From soft 1930's colors to rich batiks on dark ground colors - and what about modern prints on gray?  Can you find the wool applique?
All beautiful!
A few are doing pot holder and 'quilt as you go' techniques - they will have finished quilts as their list of completed blocks grow.

Esther's designs from 1858 interpret so well to the 21st Century.  Imagine what she would think if she saw our work.
There are a few ways you can share your work with us.

If you do not blog or use Facebook,
email us photos with permission to post them on this blog or Facebook for you.  We will help you share.

For those following and not stitching, you can join in at anytime!  We will share some of those blocks in the next post.  We have new stitchers joining each week, you will be in good company.

Tempted to start another set of blocks?  Several of us have - seeing all of this inspiration and support is so motivating.

Are you thinking about sashing?
Fussy cutting fabrics?
We are seeing fantastic interpretations.

To see even more pictures of the beautiful blocks and chat with other quilters participating in the Sew Along visit the SVBAQ Facebook page.

We are linking up with our blogging friends to share their progress.
Please be sure to visit them by clicking on the thumbnail pictures at the bottom of this post.

Stay tuned for more monthly photos of stitchers just starting and some catching up.  It is never too late to join us.

Check back often as we will be adding more links over the next week or so.

Happy Stitching!
Dawn & Doreen
