Going up? Yes, thank you! A new PDF pattern design by Allison Harris found on Cluck, Cluck, Sew. Very interesting fabric choices to complete this red, white and blue patriotic beauty.
The pattern is called "The Nested Churn Dash" and Sherri @ A Quilting Life posted a picture of her quilt finished in 2014. She says it continues to be one of her favorites and one can readily see why! It's a red, white and blue beauty and the pattern is a digital download made available by Quilt Jane.
Sherri aka A Quilting Life and her daughter Chelsi Stratton are a design fabric team for Moda and here is a most delightful use of their "Creekside" fabric line in Chelsi's 'Patriotic Stars'.
Add just one more brick to the load and you've got a finished red, white and blue brick quilt - a free pattern download found at All People Quilt.
Who could resist this Tribute Star found on Denyse Schmidt Quilts...….a free pattern from Rebecca Bryan AKA Bryan House Quilts. Yes, the DS Quilts' fabric definitely made an enviable quilted star, but can you see this in red, white and blue! Just click Tribute Star and let this free quilt pattern ring.
Seeing red? Add white and blue for that July 4th Bar-B-Que quilt celebration.
