A friend of mine became a U.S. citizen last year. I wanted to make her a red, white and blue quilt as a gift. I used the Honeybell Star pattern, as the starting point, but I wanted the stars to be 5 pointed rather than the pieced 6 pointed stars in the quilt pattern.
My husband was kind enough to draft it out for me. I have included it as a Free Download .pdf in case you want to make one too. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5upUw7sheBOcHU5Rmh0c254bEU/edit
I used a large print fabric for the center and fill-in blocks and a pieced square in a square for the 4 corners. The center fabric could be used in place of those pieced blocks. I used a small print for the setting squares, except I didn’t use any applique on them as it is in the pattern.
If you would like to make this quilt, please let me know by replying to the blog post. I will donate all my leftover red, white and blue fabric (about 4 pounds worth) if you purchase the Honeybell Star pattern for this project.
The link from my website to purchase the pattern is directed to a local quilt shop. They will notify me of your purchase. I will draw a name out of the hat on February 13th.
