The blocks are 2" square (finished size--cut 2 1/2" square), so the wall hanging will be...let's see...22 x 14 inches. I may or may not put a border on.
As you can see, I'm planning to use lots of different fabrics. In fact, here are my options:
I probably won't end up using every fabric I have, but I really like the idea of putting together all these different fabrics into one American display. It just seems so appropriate, since we're a nation of immigrants--a "melting pot" of cultures. (And it's a nice way to use up random scraps!)
For the quilting, I am planning to machine-quilt: E pluribus unum/ Out of many, one.
Happy crafting, everyone!
