Patriotic

IMG_9179

Nothing rings in July like a (really bright) red, white and blue quilt.  This quilt is a twin size, 60" x 80" with 48 star blocks.  I think this might even be the 1st star quilt I’ve posted on this blog…or 2nd…beats me.

Either way I love it and all its blindingly bright goodness.  It’s chocked full of different fabrics so I’m not going to attempt naming them all…not that I know all of them (I do).  Now to finish this in time for the 4th of July!

*if you want to know what a particular fabric is…email me…cause if you are a no-reply blogger I can’t reply!  :)

Pin It!

Beautiful! What size are the blocks? I'mmaking a lap blanket right now with those stars and my block size is 9 1/2 ". I'd sure like a pattern for a 12" block. I love your Americanna colors.

Hugs
Julie

I love that SO much!!! I would love to see how to make a star square (hint, hint). You make such beautiful quilts. I am working on a Chain Reaction quilt for my little boy. Love it!

That is an absolutely perfect Fourth of July quilt!!!

Tammy said...

This is the most beautiful quilt! I wish I had your knack for color!

Mama Bell said...

I like that you used a traditional sawtooth star and gave it a modern look! Yes, I agree, a happy, freedom loving quilt!

Leslie said...

this is gorgeous!!!

Mrs. D said...

I love it!!!!! did you use a tutorial for the blocks? I REALLY want to make a quilt like this. I have a lot of those DS fabrics from joanns. oh this is gorgeous!

lindsay's sew trying said...

I am totally going to have to borrow this idea. I love the traditional blocks, as most of the quilting that I have done has been more modern. My mother in law loves anything red,white,and blue. Is there a particular tutorial for the block or a standard name of the star block you used?

Kelly said...

Love the quilt. Great job!

Cindy said...

I love it!

Theophanie said...

LOVE it!

jlk said...

Love it! You've inspired me to actually finish my 4th quilt that I started last year. On July 3rd.

lindsey s. said...
