First 3 Quilt Squares

Finally started the American Flag Quilt! I've made quite a lot of progress on it already.

The first state is Delaware, which was admitted to the union on  December 7, 1787.

The second was Pennsylvania.

The Quaker State became part of the country on  December 12, 1787.

And heeeeeeeerrrrrrrreeeeeeee’s New Jersey!

New Jersey is, surprisingly (at least to me), the third state. The Garden State joined the nation on December 18, 1787.

I’m going to put this piece aside for a while. There’s a danger that I’ll get bored – even though each block is incredibly unique and detailed. I’ll just work on a little piece to take a break and then I’ll get back to it.

See you soon!

Still great!! I love this design even though I'm not American (French actually)! Wish I could find something similar about UK or France ☺
