Loranne’s 🇺🇸 Flag quilt
Loranne made this beautiful flag quilt, the pattern is Fifteen Stars by Wilma Moss of Brick cottage Quilts. She contacted me through my website and requested some custom quilting and shared a picture with me. So I drew out the design I ended up quilted out on some graph paper first, and then sent it to her. I love when something drawn on paper comes to life. This first picture isn’t the best, but those rays of sunshine coming through the window were perfect. ❤️💙❤️
I used Linda from The Quilted Pineapple’s 16” edge ruler to quilt all the lines. Because of the awesome lines on her rulers, I didn’t need to mark anything with a water soluble pen. I freehand quilted the swirls and pebbles.
I used coordinating threads from A&E. I also used my favorite 8020 cotton poly blend batting, from Winline.
Star quilts like this one are my favorite!! Reminds me of all the things I’m so grateful for living in America, and all those who have sacrificed so much for us to have the freedoms that we have.
I love the added dimension the pattern gives this quilt. It’s beautiful!! I wanted to add the stars for a great break from all the lines in the angled blocks, and I love the burst lines that come off of the red stars.
hope you’re enjoying your summer! Or winter if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere.
