Happy Independence Day!
For today’s Scrap Happy Summer a tute for a 4th of July quilt.
To make it you will need
Various scraps of read and white for the points
63- 2 1/2″ white squares
48- 2 1/2 ” red squares
504- 2 1/2″ blue squares
110- 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ blue rectangles
For each white star use 8- 2 1/2″ blue squares and 1- 2 1/2″ white
On four of those squares sew a point as shown.
Press and trim
Add another point
Press and trim.
Arrange your star and sew into a nine patch.
With 28 of your rectangles add points on one side.
With remaining rectangles add points on both ends.
Here is the progress I have made so far.
I’m real excited for this one. Not only is it putting a dent in my blue scrap bin. (For some reason that one fills up a lot faster than the others.) It’s a wonky mindless sewing quilt perfect for summer.
Hope your 4th is safe and fun!
