Memorial Day

I've been wanting to start a patriotic scrap quilt for quite a while. What better time to begin than Memorial Day weekend

I figure if I make a flag block every Memorial Day and July 4 for a few years I'll end up with enough blocks to make a lap quilt eventually 👌💗

They are scrappy squares cut to 2"
8 blocks across each row
5 rows
Easy peasy fun 🇺🇲

The quilt layout I'm planning will have a larger scrappy flag in the middle, surrounded by 8 of these small flags. There will also be 4 stars as cornerstone blocks.

Sometimes I draw a quick sketch in a sketching app on my phone just to remember my planned layout.
