Quilt a day #13

Today was boring housework and playing games with the kids. Tonight I decided to make an American Hero quilt out of some 6.5" charm squares and had to cut more fabrics to have enough squares. Now the squares have to go up on the design wall to distribute the colors.

The first quilt is one that was in Foundation Piecer magazine as a series. It took quite awhile but it was worth it! I usually take this one to put on my bed at quilt camps (even the ones that provide bedding because I never have enough blankets). I made this in 2003 and it's machine quilted.
The next one is a wallhanging I made in the late 90's. Well I started in the late 90's and finished it in 2001! I was going to make some more blocks and just never did so I finished it as a wallhanging.
