American Patchwork Update

I can't believe the last time I posted about this was October 16, 2010

It is called American Patchwork by Debbie Stiehler. It was an April, 2010 Foothills EGA workshop.

I have stitched on it since then and got this far by the time I started back on it on May 31, 2021.

Since it is easier to work on the garland for Dela Robia Santa at my studio desk, I picked American Patchwork up to work on in the evenings. I set a goal to get it finished by July 4. Note I did not say what year!

Here are some progress photos:

I have one partial square to do to finish the red stripe. The edges are not smooth since it will be finished inside a tray with an oval opening, so I do not need to finish each square around the edges (unless I want to) because they will not show.

After this is the white stripe and a little bit of a red strip at the bottom in the middle.

July 4 here I come!!

Happy Stitching!!

I found this chart this year. I might need to modify slightly to make it fit the intended box top. Thanks for the inspiration!
