PostSubject: Americana Quilt Along?   Tue May 26, 2009 4:02 pm

Okay, Girls, Golo talked me into this...not really... I am going to try a quilt along table topper Americana style. Hopefully,we will finish before Independence Day Celebrations....
The pattern is free. It is at www.freepatterns.com then click on quilting>speical occasions> patriotic. The pattern is the rotating star
It is a walhanging,but can be used as a table topper with a center piece.
If anyone is interested contact me.
jessilynnknowles@yahoo.com or just post here.
This calls for templates, but since it is the friendship star we might have an easier way to do it.

Let me know girls!!!!


This is the quilt featured on the free pattern site

While looking at the pattern I realized this is one big 9 patch.... first off each block is a nine patch and 3 blocks make a row and 3 rows makes one big 9 patch... boy how easy is that... Thumbup I am going to start cutting today... I found I had a lot of red white and blue... :) After putting it together it is not a 9 patch .. just looked that way.. but sure went together easy...

Here is my first block.... be very carefull when sewing your middle block to the first a/b block... you don't sew across a/b you sew 1/2 way down the side to start off... look at the example very carefully..

Jessica, it depends on where you are trying to post the picture.
Can you explain where you want to post and what happens when you follow the instructions from the link Chris posted?
