For September we made the four tree-themed blocks for the Flags of the American Revolution quilt-along at Humble Quilts:
The Continental Navy sailed under this "Appeal to Heaven" flag:
A flag depicting the Battle of Bunker Hill:
The Pine Tree Flag - a symbol of strength and used as a symbol of Massachusetts long before the Revolution:
And another form of the Pine Tree Flag,
All of the blocks are from Flags of the American Revolution by Jan Patek. Working these was challenging and I kept reminding myself that extra-primitive is OK in my book!
Meanwhile... fall is arriving! My favorite season by far.
The first time I ever saw my house, I thought wow, someone had the guts to paint the door ORANGE and I love it! It is high time to repaint the door... and I'm thinking of keeping the orange...
With the cold weather coming, someone has to stack this wood..... not me:).
