Red, White, and Blue Scrappy Flag Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

It’s time for some scrappy red, white, and blue quilted goodness.  This patriotic flag pattern from Diary of Quilter is about as scrappy as it gets.

Measuring about 39″ x 51″ when finished, it is super simple to make.  With the exception of a small part of the quilt, it’s all about squares.  The trick with this one is to have enough scraps in the various colors.

Of course, for us quilters, that probably is not a huge problem.  Because it is so easy to put together, you could easily make this quilt in a day or two ...

starting july off right . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

We enjoyed a terrific long Independence Day weekend! On Thursday, we had 'staff enrichment', which means we went to lunch together at a nice restaurant and then went home afterwards. Hip, hip! On Friday, Todd and I did our usual boating trip where he fished and I mostly read. I never get tired of the scenery!
On Saturday, we hit the lake again, this time with the Merkel crew.  
 
We spent the day swimming and splashing (and eating), and then we headed towards the shoreline at dark to watch fireworks.  It was fabulous!  
All the big shows had coronacancelled, but ...

4th of July and Flag Boy from Log Cabin Quilter

In my last post, I shared a picture of two sailboat blocks I had made.  Today I am sharing a photo of the completed quilt top.  I did not have enough of the main red fabric in the border, so I added in a second piece.  I think it looks fine that way.  I used fabrics from three different lines of fabric done by Minnick and Simpson plus a couple other pieces from my stash of reds and blues.



I completed a wall hanging from a pattern called "Flag Boy".  The pattern is in an older book by Sarah Sporrer ...

I am finding myself moving from one quilt project to another.  Just whatever fancies my interest on any given day.  I started a new quilt project.  One with sailboats in red, white, and blue.  I don't have as many summer quilts to display as other seasons and this will be a welcome addition.  Four completed blocks thus far and many parts for others.






Below is a picture of the pattern cover so you can get an idea of what the final product should look like.  You need the Boat Day pattern plus the add on called "4th of July ...

4th of July from Polka Dots and Butterflies



Another great scrap buster is this 4th of July pattern by Pat Sloan.  The pattern is called Grand Ole Flag. I whipped this up just in time for the 4th.  I loved using a different background color then I normally would have.  This turquoise is unusual and really makes the flags stand out.  The backing is centennial fabric I had in my stash.
