Foothills Quilt QAL

Mary Elizabeth Kinch is hosting a Foothills Quilt QAL.  

A vintage Chain and Bar quilt is the inspiration for the QAL.  I just love vintage quilts and am inspired a lot of times to make a similar quilt. This is one of those times. I decided to use my patriotic fabrics (plus some plaids) because I've challenged myself to use my holiday fabrics this year.  It may even be a Quilt of Valor quilt if I'm able to part with it. 

Block 1 of 25

I'm using Easy Angle rulers to cut the pieces instead of the QAL directions. 

I meant for the Flying Geese to have white body and red corners but I've been making hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of little Flying Geese for my Blind Man's Fancy quilt sashings and they are dark with light corners so I guess I just automatically did the same thing here. (sigh)!

I have been so tempted! Your block is a wonderful start! CAn't wait to see where you go with these.:)

I really like your red, white & blue design block! Are you using your Easy Angle ruler to cut the flying geese? That would save a lot of marking and fabric too. The only problem is, no bonus triangles - not that I need any more of them.

How pretty - It looks time consuming
