Guild Block {July}

Happy 4th of July! This month's block-of-the-month at my local guild was a very appropriate flag. We were given the blue fabric and added our own white & red.

I'm not going to lie, I had a challenge in making the star for this block and it didn't come out great. The sixteen little blocks that make up the star are 1.5" square. That's very little! My points didn't line up quite right...... I don't think I will be mistaken for Betsy Ross anytime soon!

Here are a few of the other guild member's blocks as they were turned in. I was quite surprised to see so few prints. I guess not too many were willing to part from the traditional flag fabrics.

Have a happy & safe independence day!

I think having just a few prints makes it interesting...
what do you do with the blocks?
does someone put it together and give it to charity?

I don't like doing points unless it's paper-pieced! Actually, I like your block the best. I'm a non-conformist anyway...LOL

Hope you have a happy 4th :)

Oh, can you email me the photo of all the blocks together so I can put on the guilds website. I always forget to take pictures.

I like your block with the print. Modernized it a lot. I didn't even think of using a print for that block when I made them.
