Patriotic Week

Since it is still the week of July 4th, I thought I’d share another patriotic wall hanging with you.  This pattern is called “Grand Old Flag” and was published in a book called “The Best of Black Mountain Quilts” by Teri Christopherson.  I like the blue and white toile fabric border with the rustic stars and stripes.

Each star is appliqued to a 3″ x 3″ ivory square.  I used the needle turn applique method which was a bit hard with all those star points.  According to the pattern (not me!) the stars don’t have to be in nice, neat rows which made them easier to applique!  I like them wonky!

After looking through this book, I think I will make a few more  Americana quilts from Teri’s designs.  She designed the cutest “Blueberry Basket” table runner and a cute “Blueberry Wreath” wall hanging.

Mom loves to pick blueberries and I think she should have something to remind her of blueberries all year long!  We have been known to pick a few blueberries in our day!  Sorry I got off on a tangent but at least blueberries are a patriotic color!
