I picked up these green fat quarters while visiting Shipshewana, Indiana. Not sure I love how this came out. I used this free on-line pattern called No Point Stars by Cluck Cluck Sew. https://cluckclucksew.com/2017/12/no-point-stars-a-free-printable-pattern-in-5-sizes.html
Hi Quilters! I saw a picture of a quilt sort of like this online, Pinterest or somewhere. It was one row wider and had blue background blocks on all the corners with 5 point stars applique in white fabric. It also had no border. I needed mine a size of about 60x80. Another row would have put me way over, so I opted for smaller borders. With 3 stars across I also decided it wouldn’t look good with the blue corner blocks and 1 Star block, on top and bottom. So this is my version. I think if I make it again I’ll start with smaller Star blocks. Do you think it set on point? It’s not! I thought it was and wondered how they got their blue square corner blocks set in. I made a 12 inch Sawtooth Star then treated it like the center square, in a square block!-lol It made 17 1/2 blocks set straight. It does look like Star blocks and hourglass or quarter square triangles, don’t you think? Did it fool you? It did me too at first. I just had to figure it out-lol This ended up about 63 x 81. It will of course, go with the others for our men and women veterans who deserve so much. Have a nice weekend- Toogie
The flag and printed squares were a panel. Actually I was given 2 panels just alike, so one of the printed squares, is from the second panel as I needed 10 printed squares. I was uncertain what to do with them but this is what I came up with. By the way, I love the check/gingham don’t you? Size is 63x81 and will go to a veteran. The dark border color is a blood red but looks almost black in the picture. I hope you all have a nice day quilting or not-Toogie
I've made many quilts for my daughter and her family but never a Christmas quilt. I used this very simple pattern to show off this adorable fabric, 'All about Christmas', Riley Blake. I plan to give it to her for her birthday in October so that she can use it this Christmas.
I’ve had “The Birds of Liberty” fabric in the 2.5” squares for some time now. Not enough to make a significant size table topper, so I made my daughter two small toppers for her bedroom side tables. She loves them, and wants a quilt to match! Lol Probably not a chance, since this line is oop…but I’ll keep searching!
This is a pattern from quite sometime ago. I donated it for an adult for Uvadle. The pattern is Lynne Hagmeier from Kansa Trouble Quilters. The quilt is 70 1/2 by 83 1/2. Uses a layer cake and yardage. You can also find it here: http://kansastroublesquilters-lynne.blogspot.com/2014/09/paisley-park-preview-week-2.html
Hi! These emblems were pillow panels that were given to me by another member in our group. I soon found out why. The fabric was yardage like pillow panels with one cut off, leaving me 19 to work with. When I cut the first one off, I realized I could not keep the red and gold frame that was around the emblem. One way it measured 15 inches and the other way 16 1/2 inch. When I tried to square it up, the frame became wonky so…I cut it down to the center emblem. Even the emblem was not even but I was able to get a 12 1/2 inch square out of each one. I wanted to use them all up so no one else would have to deal with this mess, but I have one left. -lol Anyway, the veteran that receives it won’t know the trouble it was, thank goodness.
