Remember the mini patriotic wallhanging I made the other day using a rejected star block? I quilted it tonight and hung it in one of those metal table frames.
The star block was made with flying geese blocks that measured 2-1/2" x 1-1/2"; the center square was cut at 2-1/2"; and the corner squares were cut at 1-1/2"--just in case you want to make one too. The star block then measured 4-1/2". I cut the red and white strips 1-1/2" wide; the top four strips were cut 4-1/2" long; the bottom three strips were cut 8-1/2" long. There you go: a flag!
After that, I cut the yellow border pieces 1-1/4" wide, and the outside border was cut at 2" and trimmed a little after quilting. I have a couple alternative border ideas in mind; I think I need to make a little hanging for The Wild Child, so if I try something different, I'll be sure to share. Happy stitching!
