More Flags for Sue.... and My One Monthly Goal

it is just so much fun to go to the mailbox these days... And yes there are still a few bills - but I can easily toss those aside to ohh and ahh over the blocks!!!  Whoot Whoot!!

Want to see the loot from this week... um I mean blocks????

So I Tried to write on each photo
Because some of you told me some cool things that I didn't want to forget

Like this one
AGE 11 
Totally Awesome!!!

And here is Top Number 4
I kinda sorta think I should put a light blue border around it
Middle bit agrees, Little bit says - eh Maybe
I said  - I want to get it in this blog post so stand up and let me take a photo!!
What do you think?

and PS - some of you (not necessarily the one under this ) said - they are not perfect
but I hope you can use them

um!! Have you ever read my blog....
Perfection is not a worry!
I can use them - they way I have been setting them is pretty dang forgiving

and PPS

I think I should come visit about now
Is it cool in Alaska in the summer????

Do you have an igloo I could sleep in?

Wow! You are going to need an extra long August to get all of those blocks into quilt tops! Very cool!

The Joyful Quilter said...

SEW many reader blocks!!! Get busy making those quilt tops, Alycia.

Sherrill said...

WOW just WOW!! That's a LOTTA BLOCKS!! Are you the only one piecing tops with all these beauties? That's a GREAT use of a panel. I might give that a whirl (and yes, it probably does need a blue, light or dark!).

You are welcome to come visit any time, but no igloo for you to stay in ;-)
It is lovely and cool compared to Colorado: 50's to 70's!

It's such fun to see the huge variety of blue star fabrics used for these blocks. Locally I don't believe any of our shops carry blue fabric with stars. It's a sad lack. Thanks for sharing all the blocks and for adding details about each.

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

I love seeing the blocks coming in! :)

There will be a lot of QoV's to honor Sue. BTW, it may be cooler in Alaska now, but, less than a month ago my son was complaining about the 90 degree temps (no AC in the houses up there).

Patty said...

What great blocks. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project!

Mari said...

Wow! I don't think this top needs a border at all. It looks great as-is! Looking forward to all the creative layouts that will come out of this!

jann said...

Love seeing all the different fabrics that come together to make the same project!.. Your August is going to be extremely busy!

Susan said...

Wow, that's fabulous! Sue is dancing with joy at all the quilts being made in her memory - though I'm sure she's thinking about those who will receive them! What a great idea this was, Alycia!

Cathy said...

I echo the WOW!
Looks like you have a lot of quilts to get put together! Wonderful!
And I would only add a border if you need to make it bigger. But then again I'm not a person who usually adds borders.

Debi said...

Wow! That is a lot of flags! I can't wait to see your progress.

Kate said...

Wow, what a great bunch of blocks!

Michele said...

This is all fantastic.

Snowcatcher said...

11 years old?!? You just brought the biggest smile to my face! Sometimes it seems like the world has become an ugly place, and then I read about an 11-year-old making blocks for a QoV project... There are plenty of good people in this world!!!

Angie said...

This is so heartwarming I can hardly see straight! Of course, I should not be surprised what people around the world can do when they are motivated! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

That's quite a collection of blocks. Great idea making quilts. Good luck. Thanks for linking up with Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday (TGIFF).
