Hi Bakers!  I am Lisa Jo Girodat of Neverlandstiches and am so excited to be back on Moda Bakeshop to discuss this new quilt pattern.

I have a confession to make…I like history!  I am such a geek! I love anything related to background I’m addicted to displays like Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Knight Fall, anything related to the American Revolution or Civil War.  I listen to the soundtrack from Hamilton at least once every week.  As soon as I saw the gorgeous new set by the French General, Viva Le France that I couldn’t resist creating a quilt, which could represent an American Flag. I just love this collection provides versions of blues and reds so I could make nearly a gradient/worn effect.

I’m rating this quilt as Moderate only due to the quarter square triangles from the Ohio Stars and those used at the top segments of the sashing.

This quilt finishes at 73″ x 80″.

4 yards of Moda Bella 9900-60 Ivory for background fabric ( This neutral strong as totally dreamy and my absolute new favorite!! I you’ve tried it, I highly encourage you to snag several yards)

5 1/2  yards backing fabric I used 13831-14 from the Vive La France collection
1 yards binding fabric {I used 13830-16 in the Vive La France collection

Your Treasured neutral piecing thread
A rotatory cutter, mat and ruler
Your favourite 3 1/2 inch and 5 1/2 HST rulers

Before you start:

Read the entire pattern before you begin so that you might plan out which materials you wish to use in the various sections. (A preparation colour sheet could be downloaded from my site ):

  • All seams are a genuine quarter inch
  • Fabrics were squirt starched before cutting
  • Seams were all pressed into the darker fabrics
  • indefinitely, I sew and cut one part at a time to keep order in my messy sewing room and to get a sense of accomplishment.

There are 3 basic block used in this quilt:

  • Ohio Star
  • Churn Dash
  • Nine Patch

The blocks should be trimmed to 9 1/2 inches so that they complete in 9″.
