Easily Adjust the Size to Fit Your Space!
Pull out your blue, red and white (or tan) prints for an American flag quilt. The more fabrics the better for this scrappy version. Or, start with 1/8 yard cuts if you don’t have enough variety on hand.
Fabric squares make it simple to put together. In fact, this quilt is so easy that even beginners can quickly complete it.
Instructions are included for a vertical version, as shown here, as well as a horizontal flag. Make it up in the size that best fits your space.
The fabric squares used in the example are cut at 4 1/2″. That produces a quilt that finishes at 39″ x 51″.
However, the designer, Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter, provides instructions for adjusting the size. Simply use bigger or smaller squares.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
