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!
