    Most any block can be patriotic if its R/W/B. Just my opinion.

    I agree. With this short notice, I would choose any 12" block you are comfortable making and usew red, white & blue fabric.

    This is one Moda used a couple years ago for some honor quilts. It uses the "snowball" technique of a small square on a corner, sewn on the diagonal, folded back to corner of base square.

    Cut your 8 white "background" squares at 4.5" square.
    Cut your 1 blue "star center" squares at 4.5" square.
    Cut your 8 red "point" squares at 2&5/8" square.

    I am working on a red, white and blue patriotic quilt right now. I too picked a block pattern I like, then (for the first time) I have incorporated a very cool eagle panel into the quilt. So far, so good! Stay tuned...
