It's been hard to fit in the time to sew, but I finally got a few hours in tonight. Thankfully, those few hours were very productive and I finished my Stars and Stripes quilt top!!
To make the stars I made a paper piece pattern. The stripes are made up of red and white stripes sewn together and then cut into squares... and then re sewn together. Seems a little redundant on the sewing... but I really like the scrappy variety look it created.
Now I just need to square off the edges, add a backing, quilt, and then bind :)
