Part 3 of America The Beautiful Quilt

For some reason this part was a challenge for me, from choosing the fabric to making the Bounty blocks fit.  Have you ever patched a block?  I did today when my log cabin block fell short of the two adjacent pieces.  And when I was taking pictures I saw that one of the log cabins is oriented the wrong way.  Geesh.

The designer's version has the flag in browns, pinks and creams.  But I was afraid my quilt would look dull if I used soft colors so I went traditional.
I intend to embroider a small cross over the door of the church , and maybe add a button doorknob.
These are the Bounty blocks.

Here are all my blocks so far in approximately the place they will be in when the qult top is sewn together.

Yesterday I received the QuiltAlbum disc I won during SewCalGal's Golden Quilter Award event.
This will be fun to use, I think.  I was hoping I would win this software, so it's another prize I'm very happy with.

God Bless You.

All of your blocks look amazing! I have the worse time with log cabin blocks and am always having to make some sort of adjustment to them. Congrats on your win!!
