    Free Pattern...had to try it!

    I found this free pattern in an advertisement in the March-April Quiltmaker magazine and had to try it. I did modify it by adding the additional blue border around the bottom along with extra stars. I machine quilted it and hand quilted the small stars in the center along with a star quilted in the middle of each. I started it in January on my 1950 Singer 301a and finished it today. I learned a lot, just like I do on every quilt. Oh, yes, I didn't go out and buy a single piece of fabric. All of the fabric including the backing was from my stash. Hey great quilters, I am learning from all of you.

    l like that a lot. Real Americana. How great that you were able to "shop" in your stash for all the fabric. Way to go.

    Great pattern!!!! The border just completes this quilt. How nice to have a stash that came together like this.

    This is an awesome quilt. What is the name of the pattern as I would love to find it and make the quilt. Your added touches made it a real beauty.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love it! I love your choices of fabrics and the overall design. Is the pattern on line somewhere, for free? If so, can you send a link.

    But anyway, can you tell us the size of the squares in the middle?
