Hello quilting friends! I\’m popping in today to show you my second block from the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio! This BOM runs for five months, from January through May. The Block 2 pattern was released on the FWFS blog on January 30. This pretty block measures 14\” square and is a Shoofly variation star block.
I\’m so excited to be making my first patriotic quilt based on these free illustrated instructions provided by Fort Worth Fabric Studio designer Lindsey Weight! Do you have a patriotic quilt? Maybe you\’d like to join us and sew along!
Here is a photo of my Block 1, which was released on January 9. I\’m sewing my blocks together using red, white and blue (and aqua) fabrics in my stash. So far I\’ve been pulling from my Fig Tree favorites, but I have some Bonnie & Camille pieces ready to make an appearance too!
The great news is that Fort Worth Fabric Studio has put together a KIT using beautiful Moda fabrics from various designers. The kit includes all material you need to create the quilt top plus binding. They also have coordinating backing you can purchase! Here’s a photo of Lindsey’s finished quilt, which measures 60” square.
