Patriotic Quilt

My dad's birthday is July 4th and my mom and I are making a quilt for him to celebrate. (It's his 60th) So the quilt needed to be patriotic, of course, and I've been collecting fabrics for it over the past couple months. We cut out 192 pieces today for the double rail blocks and here is a preview of what the blocks are going to look like. There will also be some cream colored fabric in between the blocks and red stars between all the corners. I'm excited to see this one come together. :-)
