Mystery Blog Hop From Farmhouse Threads and the Other 11 of Us. 2017 Patriotic Theme!!!!

It's that time of year again.  Ok, so we bounce around the calendar a bit. But there is a reason this time.  Since it's a Patriotic theme, Rhonda thought that maybe, you would like to have the quilt done by 4th of July.  So that is why we are getting a jump of the Blog Hop this year.   
I'm week #2.  I thought I was being smart, getting it done a bit early so I have more time to get ready for Spring Market.  I'm kinda known for not looking at the calendar too close sometimes.  If I had, I would be later down the batting order, since I'm going to be up here in Washington when the blog is released.  Doesn't really matter as far as downloading the pattern, they have internet here in the Great Northwest. 
The kits are all done.  We did those before I left on my trek north.  Please be nice, my husband of 31 years, will be home navigating the computer and printing out shipping labels.  Computers in NOT his first language, :) But he is much better than even a year ago.  

Rhonda told me awhile ago what the theme would be.  So I my head my design looked like this. 
Orignial Layout
Then Rhonda says,"Oh by the way, I'm setting the Blocks on Point." 
So back to the drawing board.  
There's more than one way to get 2 crows, a flag and USA on a quilt Block. 

Crows On Point
So with a bit of maneuvering, the job got done.  I hope you enjoy it. 

We have Block kits along with thread Kits as well.  
The Block kit contains all the Diamond Textile fabric and wool used to make my block. $11.95
The Valdani Wool Floss kit is $12.00  You get all four colors.  Wool floss is regular priced @$3.75,  I'm saving you a bit to give the new floss a try.  I love it.  But you must remember not to yank on it like you can Pearl Cotton, just pull and let the wool sink into the wool.

I hope you have fun with the Rest of the Designers over the next 10 weeks. If you don't have the list here you go.
