So, that's exactly what I did.
Here's a short tale of where these blocks came from.... Almost a year ago I took a 2 day workshop with the designer Pat Speth. Day one was a project that I really liked and worked hard on getting that quilt done even after the workshop was over. Day 2 however was a little different. Even though my patriotic color way was what I wanted to work on, making the project just didn't appeal to me. I made 1 full block and 9 of the center pinwheels. Then it was time to clean up and take the almost 3 hour drive home.... I NEVER once pulled the project back out until this month when I needed red white and blue fabrics for another project. So, here's the topper on my kitchen table last night in front of one of my favorite wall quilts. This morning I took another picture of it on my counter with my favorite candle holder!!! I've got quite a repertoire of patriotic going on this "President's Weekend". I never think I have a lot until I start looking around and I see "Uncle Sam" quilts and all the red white & blue stars!!! I'm thinking I'll take that one lone star block and make a candle mat or something with it :)
Happy President's Weekend Everyone!!!!
