    Hi

    I have been searching the net for a king-size American flag quilt pattern.
    I don't just mean a patriotic (colors of red, blue, and white) but a standard american flag. My daughter has asked me to make one but I am finding patriotic stars, stripes, etc. not the genuine flag type. Does anyone have or know where I can look next? Thanks in advance. Victoria

    Maybe these will help you.
    You might can figure out your deminsions for this pattern. http://www.winnowing.com/flag.html

    I would ask for a picture before ordering this. http://store.payloadz.com/detail.asp?c=17&s=97&i=5852&m=16036

    This is the coolest thing I ever found for stars. http://desktoppub.about.com/od/paper/ss/5pointstar_9.htm

    Good luck.

    Not really - either I couldn't get a visual of what my daughter wanted (we both looked and she was not much interested in what I showed her).

    Finally bought a big roll of civil war print fat quarters - In a sale basket for $100. all rolled and tied while we were visiting Keepsake Quilts and this called out to both of us.
    Made an extra large King with a "sorta" log cabin design combined with muslin. She & hubby were delighted in it.

    Maybe you could design it yourself with log cabin blocks. I think that would be COOL!

    My daughter sent me this link, she wants a patriotic quilt.

    These are small but you could just do more repeats of the pattern.

    Thank you so much. I think I will acquire one or two of these patterns and keep them handy for a future project!

    Again thank you and your daughter.

    I know this isn't what you asked for, but wanted to share this wallhanging. It hung in a deli that I worked for, so I do not have the pattern. I thought I could probably figure it out, someday when I have nothing else to do. :lol:

    It looks like 6 Friendship Stars, Blue background with White and 42 small Log Cabin blocks for the stripes, Reds and Off- Whites.
