Stars, Stripes, and Dots Quilt - Fat Quarter Shop

 Did you know that today is Flag Day?
So that makes it the perfect day to show off the quilt 
I have been working on for the Fat Quarter Shop.


This pattern is called  Stars, Stripes and Dots.
Mine is more like
Stars, Horseshoes, and Plaid.


 For the red stripes, I used Boots and Spurs Red Horseshoe
and for the blue, Farm Girl Vintage Denim Gingham






The Fat Quarter Shop's gorgeous 
version is this. 

You can find the kit available for 
purchase over HERE

It comes with everything you need to make the quilt 
top including the Triangles on a Roll.
This was the first time that I made so 
many 2 1/2" triangles. 
I absolutely love that each HST turned out just perfect.


Do you know if you don't want to purchase the
quilt kit, they are offering the pattern for 
free!!  Yep, Free!
Go stop in at their blog.




Have you every made a Patriotic quilt?

I am looking forward to having this beauty all quilted up.
However, my children have put their bids on this 
one, but I think I will have to keep it for 
myself!!

Classic and Vintage Rocket Star

Do you ever see a pattern and say, 
"Wow, that is gorgeous!", 
but then you are a little intimidated 
to work on it? 

Fat Quarter Shop once again 
has done it again with a beautiful 
Classic and Vintage style quilt.

I was a little intimidated to make 
it, but it was so much easier than 
I had even imagined. 

Here is the very first block I created from 
the pattern.  


Let me say, I just loved it.

This particular quilt was made with a fat quarter
bundle I had sitting around just waiting to 
transform into a quilt.

One block turned into many, 


Until, it was all finished with pretty pink sashing.


It has big plans after it gets all quilted up, 
but I can't tell you what.
It would give away the surprise.

It was probably one of the more fun quilts
that I have had the pleasure of creating.



If you would like to get your hands on a quilt kit, 
featuring the Rocket Star,
the Fat Quarter Shop has a beautiful kit
available.



Go and check it out HERE.

If you would like to try it with your own stash, 
HERE is the link to the pattern.
The block pattern is completely free!!
There is also a lot of beautiful examples
to get your creative quilting juices flowing.
