Colonial Glory – Day 3

Here’s how I left the Colonial Glory wall hanging this evening at midnight.  The top six rows are sewn together.  And the bottom six rows are sewn together.  But the top and bottom are not attached yet.  Tomorrow I’ll work on the applique stars and hearts that will go in the “blue field” section of the flag. 

I’m definitely glad that I used the Ohio Star blocks … I’m an Ohio girl, so it would have been silly of me to go with the “no star” option.  I mentioned Friday that I was just not “gelling” with this particular pattern.  I think the pattern could have been re-worked as flying geese units instead of a gazillion half-square triangles.  The fewer pieced pieces you have, the fewer places there are to create errors.
