Scrappy American Squares

Scrappy American Squares
55 x 66 inches
By using the scraps from Freedom Flags and a bit of extra yardage, Scrappy American Squares was started and finished on Thanksgiving Day. The pattern American Squares by Rita Fishel is designed to use just three fabrics, so making it scrappy was a risk. I like the "modern" feel of the quilt top.

Featuring 11-inch blocks, the pattern is quick and easy - a perfect one for a beginning quilter.

Scrappy American Squares will be sent to a volunteer Quilt of Valor machine quilter after the holidays, and the finished quilt will be sent to Alycia for distribution.

  1. I'm glad the Knight is still sleeping. If he saw that AND read that it was beginner-friendly, we'd be buying me a sewing machine and fabric on the way home!!

  2. It sure doesn't look easy to me....Another treasure on it's way.

  3. Love the red, white and blue...very patriotic!

  4. Well if I ever become a beginner. I LOVE IT!

  5. love this one. And yes it is very modern looking. Nice job.
