The June Quilt Dash is called “Summer Patriotism” and if you complete the Quilt Dash, you will receive a free quilt pattern entitled “Stars and Stripes Waving Flag”:
This free pattern couldn’t come at a more appropriate time in our nation’s history.
Join us at Quilt Dash – we’d *love* to have you!
I made two separate quilts based on the bones of this block above. One was for a dear friend’s son upon his high school graduation:
And this one to give to the Commander of our county’s American Legion, in thanks for his service both in the military as well as manning the doors at the Legion:
Those ‘bones’ are solid. Perfect to use over and over again, in different variations and different quilts. And flags are great for anyone, but especially for men. Quilts and quilt fabric for men are becoming more and more popular so I see myself making more flag quilts in my future!
I have to say, this is the absolute best quilted piece I’ve created. With my Sew N’Slash™ method of piecing each block, not only do they come together quickly – the points are near-perfect! And to have it published in the April 2015 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine makes this even more special. I think it’s a keeper!
