Here's a close up of the border. And some closeups of a few of the blocks.
The background is flannel and the applique is wool.
Then, this summer I signed up for their block of the week again. This time I made myself work on each block as it arrived. I actually finished it right on time. Hooray! The background on this is a hand dyed cotton. The sashing and borders are cotton.
I absolutely LOVE working with wool. It just feels so good!
The mystery flag gift giver was none other than my wonderful friend Patty who lives in Calif and who I have known for more than 35 years. She sent it to me "just because". Isn't that sweet? Thanks Patty, I love it!
