Ok my sister wants me to make her an Americana quilt wall hanging for her new house that she can keep up year round. I cant find a pattern. Anyone have any suggestions.

How about school houses? or spools? bow ties? All done in primative colors should work.

Tons of rustic applique patterns out there, too.0

Check out

or

These are both pretty labor intensive, but beautiful.

The Star Spangled Favorites book is great. And her patterns are always easy to do.
