stars and stripes quilt finish

We had a small quilt store in our town a few years ago. It wasn't far from my house. I spent too much time visiting the store and the sisters that owned it. I took classes and participated in block of the months. It was sad to see them close.  One of the block of the months they offered, was a patriotic quilt. There is something magical about red, white, and blue quilts.
I am thinking this was 2013. The blocks were one a month, and, then, the setting was after the blocks were done. It was my one monthly goal to get it quilted this month, and, I am glad to see it finished.




On the back I used all the patriotic panel fabrics I still had in my older stash. I quilted with a fancy star allover pattern and used a stripe binding. I did the binding with my machine.



This is also a finish for my PHD 2020.

  1. pretty quilt for Memorial Day - we had a small quilt shop in the near by town for some time but the person that ran it was not a pleasant person to be around LOL - how she stayed in business as long as she did is beyond me - I guess it was because she sold sewing machines more than fabric- she didn't have enough variety of fabric for me and was aimed only at machine work
