Red White and Blue Table Topper

Hello everyone! Well, i was itchin to start something new because Cotton Blossom has been pushed to the side for a bit ... more on that later. So anyway, several months ago i saw a pattern that Kim had created called Fireworks (which you can purchase at her Etsy Shop) and i fell in love with it! I thought the center would be an awesome table-topper. I made mine without the border, but be sure to check out Kims because her border is ADORABLE! I may have to order the pattern just for the border!

So i sat down and colored out her center on some graph paper and last night i got busy cutting the blocks.

This morning i started putting it together and it was so quick and easy and i just love it! It measures 41" square without a border but I think I may put a small red border on it. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I can't wait for September 1st to start the Schnibbles a Month!!!

I can't wait either! I wonder which Schnibbles pattern will be first.

I love your block, it is gorgeous! That would make a wonderful center for a medallion quilt.
