Nothing rings in July like a (really bright) red, white and blue quilt.  This quilt is a twin size, 60″ x 80″ with 48 star blocks.  I think this might even be the 1st star quilt I’ve posted on this blog…or 2nd…beats me.
Either way I love it and all its blindingly bright goodness.  It’s chocked full of different fabrics so I’m not going to attempt naming them all…not that I know all of them (I do).  Now to finish this in time for the 4th of July!
*if you want to know what a particular fabric is…email me…cause if you are a no-reply blogger I can’t reply!  :)

    Beautiful! What size are the blocks? I'mmaking a lap blanket right now with those stars and my block size is 9 1/2 ". I'd sure like a pattern for a 12" block. I love your Americanna colors.

    I love that SO much!!! I would love to see how to make a star square (hint, hint). You make such beautiful quilts. I am working on a Chain Reaction quilt for my little boy. Love it!

  30. Tammy June 25, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    This is the most beautiful quilt! I wish I had your knack for color!

  31. Mama Bell June 25, 2011 at 4:31 pm #

    I like that you used a traditional sawtooth star and gave it a modern look! Yes, I agree, a happy, freedom loving quilt!

  32. Leslie June 25, 2011 at 5:19 pm #

    this is gorgeous!!!

  33. Mrs. D June 25, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    I love it!!!!! did you use a tutorial for the blocks? I REALLY want to make a quilt like this. I have a lot of those DS fabrics from joanns. oh this is gorgeous!

  34. lindsay's sew trying June 25, 2011 at 6:11 pm #

    I am totally going to have to borrow this idea. I love the traditional blocks, as most of the quilting that I have done has been more modern. My mother in law loves anything red,white,and blue. Is there a particular tutorial for the block or a standard name of the star block you used?

  35. Kelly June 25, 2011 at 8:02 pm #

    Love the quilt. Great job!

  36. Cindy June 25, 2011 at 9:26 pm #

    I love it!

  37. Theophanie June 25, 2011 at 9:56 pm #

  38. jlk June 25, 2011 at 11:04 pm #

    Love it! You've inspired me to actually finish my 4th quilt that I started last year. On July 3rd.

  39. lindsey s. June 26, 2011 at 2:35 am #

    oh i love it!! the 4th of july is my FAVORITE holiday… i am also curious as to how to make the star block… i'm sure there is a slick method that you used :) i just bought some red white and blue fabric and now i think i need to buy some more :) how much fabric do you think you used? so pretty

  40. Cory and Kylee June 27, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

  41. Live a Colorful Life June 27, 2011 at 10:13 pm #
