Have I said lately how much I love patriotic quilts? If not, here I go again! My latest quilting project is a patriotic stars sampler. Created by Janet Simpson Smith, this beauty was a joy – start to finish. I will start with the finish and not keep you waiting, here it is!
As any long arm quilter will tell you, construction is key to a great finished quilt. The construction of this patriotic stars sampler was very precise.
The back of the quilt which is a very small red check (looks like it belongs on a summer picnic). The quilting makes the back look mesmerizing!
Edge to Edge Pattern
The pattern chosen is Double Dutch by Urban Elementz. I love how the swirls dance around the stars and add softness and stability.
The thread used is our old friend “Oregano”. I am always amazed at how this thread is the perfect choice for so many different quilts.
