The stars and stripes redefined.
Create this for your July 4th festivities.
Applique Size: 17" x 16"
The simplest way to create this is by cutting your background fabric to approx. 18”x 17” first. This is the fabric you will put all of the other pieces on top of. Then cut and place all of the pieces on top of the black background.
Once your applique pieces are fused to the background, stitch with a straight stitch around each piece with matching thread.
Trim to square, then add a 1½ ” border.
Add batting and backing and quilt as desired.
