Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in today to share my finished beachy Stars & Stripes quilt. It will be our couch throw from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I may also display it on our deck this summer if we are having an outdoor gathering. I’m so excited to have my first patriotic quilt!
The Stars & Stripes quilt pattern by Thimble Blossoms is quick and easy ~ definitely something you could whip up in a weekend! My quilt features the blues from Brenda Riddle’s new Sweet Liberty collection. Did you notice the gorgeous backing fabric I used from that collection? It’s heavenly! The red flag stripes are a woven pinky-red from the Merry Little Christmas collection by Thimble Blossoms. I used Moda Bella Solid (White Bleached 9900-98) for the white flag stripes. And for the sashing and outer borders, I used an awesome pebble colored gingham from Brenda Riddle’s The Shores collection.
The lovely wave quilting was done by my go-to machine quilting friend, Katy at Woods Edge Quilting.
Now that I have my flag quilt completed, I really need to quilt my beachy Fat Quarter Flourish table topper I finished last week. The colors in these quilts make my hear sing!
Have a great week! Hope you can find a moment or two to get carried away quilting!
