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.
