Star Quilt

I decided to make a quilt using the free quilt pattern "Land of the free" found here.  The instructions are good.  I did bind it as taught in class, not as the instructions showed.

Joann's had patriotic material on sale for 70% off for the 4th of July.  So this is a very patriotic quilt.


First I had to make the center star.

 Then the middle star.


Then I assembled the large star points.


Next I assembled the  large middle points.


Then everything was sewn together to form the large centerpiece of the quilt.


Sixteen small red stars and four large blue stars were made.


I ended up with this

I sewed all the squares with my Singer Featherweight.  


I quilted it with my White 305.


I attached the binding with my Necchi Supernova Ultra.



After quilting and binding, here it is. 78 inches square.


The back has patriotic dogs.



Thanks for stopping.
