Red, White and Blue Finish

There is something about
Red, White and Blue
that draws me in.
And it is Red, White and Blue anything...
quilts, wreaths, clothing, etc.
Maybe it's because my father was one of the most
Patriotic people I've known.

Last year when I saw the "Polka Dot and Paisley"
fabric line by Minnick and Simpson,
I knew I would be making something with it.

Here it is...

This pattern came from one of the Missouri Star Quilt "Block" magazines.

The pinwheels and rails really move the eye around this design.


The pattern called for using the pieces cut when adding the pinwheels to the
rail blocks as the border pieces. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it,
but it has grown on me.
It's a very different border.


My LAQ did a great job quilting it with swirls.

I don't know where this quilt will end up yet.
It will either be donated or given to someone....
I'll wait until I'm "told" where it belongs.  

Happy Friday!

I seem to remember you had some issues with the pinwheels while it was under construction. Glad you soldiered through 'cause it's lovely. Congrats on a finish!

Fantastic quilt! It has so much movement and pizzazz. You should be proud of this finish :)

A very patriotic finish. Just in time for Memorial Day.

Debbie said...

Love it! Was it a strip quilt pattern?

I love MS star blocks/tutorials, so neat! You will be able to display it a bit for patriotic season before you 'give' it away;-) Great finish.

Such a great finish! I love the design - very visual and perfect for those fabrics. And i love that border too - unique!

Kudos to you on a beautiful finish! I think that the gold or tan in the border is an inspired touch.
