Rogue Sweet Land of Liberty Block
I really like this block, since I have been wanting to make a map quilt like this for a while. Even though the purpose of making this block for this quilt is to get it out of my system and my to-do list, I'm now debating whether I should make another one for my small quilt collection.
The directions require fusible applique and since I am all about following the rules, I made this one fusible. I still need to sew it down. But the bonus we got out of this block is that fusible applique is now on the table for future blocks.
There's some good news here. The flag bird is back. I was hoping to find it on the ironing board all nice and flat, but nope, it was with scraps of fabric. There has been more whispering, because the bird did not return with the star. There is a betting pool for whether it has been a big break up, the star ran off with someone else, or if the star was disappeared.
P.S. The Orphan Block box is where the circles are stored. During some reorganization a few years ago, the orphan blocks were kicked out of the box. Don't worry, I'm sure they were moved to a nicer home.
