A Mini Version is Available Too!
Large half-square triangles come together for form stylized stars and stripes in this patriotic throw quilt. The patchwork border gives the quilt a festive finish.
The quilt is an easy one to make and will stitch together fairly quickly. You may already of fabrics from your stash to draw from. Pull out the reds, whites, tans and blues and you’ll have this finished up before you know it.
This great tip from McCall’s quilting will help you create a controlled scrappy quilt with a traditional appeal:
“When choosing assorted fabrics, look for prints in each of the three color families that incorporate colors from the other two color families to maintain a controlled scrappy look with your quilt. For instance, look for white and cream prints that include motifs in red, blue or even hints of gold. Star motifs and small-scale shirting and reproduction prints will work particularly well for a traditional aesthetic.”
Once completed, the quilt from designer Candy Hargrove is 69″ x 81″.
A mini version, measuring 26½˝ x 31½˝, will be perfect for a wall. The pattern, from McCall’s Quilting, is free.
