I selected an array of patriotic fabrics and cut 12 inch squares. I then designed a medium sized start to sew on top. I stitched them on random squares to eliminate an exact pattern.
I stitched them on allowing 1/4 inch seam allowance. I wanted them to fray when washed to add some texture to the the quilt
The star edges continue to fray with age and use. It is such a fun quilt for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and truly any time of the year.
