Free Motion Quilting-The Patriot’s Challenge

 

Free motion quilting, flag and USA MapWORKING IN SERIES

Last year for the Fourth of July, I made The Anchor Quilt

I intended to stitch a few more Americana quilts that were swirling in my head, but summer slipped away…

One way to help unify a group of quilts is to limit the supplies:  In this challenge, I limited myself to a piece of Robert Kaufman Kona fabric in Riviera blue and Sulky Rayon thread in pale yellow.

This flag quilt was a simple way to begin the series…It is 7″ x 10″.  The Greek Key free motion quilt motif may be found in the weekly tutorials and is one of my favorites.

The second quilt is a bit larger…USA is 20″ x 15″….

Tomorrow…More of The Patriot’s Challenge…Working in Series...

And there’s still time to join me!

Choose one color fabric:  red, white or blue?…and one thread…YOUR country…

…and crown Thy good with brotherhood…
