Friday Finish #2 -- Stars, Stripes & Other Things

I'm happy to announce I have another finish!  This quilt is called Stars, Stripes & Other Things.  I started this project late in 2016 because I needed a little applique project for my to-go bag.  These nine little stars fit the bill.  I love it! 

It finished at 46" x 46".  I quilted it using my Circle Lord giant template board called Milky Way.  Boy do I love Circle Lord products for finishing the job!  Here's a picture to show the swirls and stars.  I did not use the inside stars (which are in the template.)

I found a nice plaid for the backing.  Fitting for the theme in front.  I also made use of the first row of flags and stars that I had started in a quilt along in 2016 in which I just couldn't keep up with all my projects.  I'm happy to report that WIP #2 of 85 for 2017 is complete.

The pattern is called Stars, Stripes & Other Things.  The pattern had rail fence blocks in it, but I just used squares.  It is in this book that I found at a garage sale:

I love those little projects in my to-go bag.  It makes me feel productive.

It's time to link up those finishes for the Finish-A-Long Q1 Link-Up. 

I'm linking up with Rhonda's Quilt Ramblings here. for the Q1 finish.  You can see my original 2017 Goal Setting post here.

Back then, this quilt was just a little quilt top awaiting a back, quilting, and binding.


I'm linking up with Sarah Craig at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I get a Whoop Whoop?  Make sure to check out her Squirrel tutorial there today.  It's SUPER CUTE!  Use up those 2.5" strips!

I'm also linking up with Myra at Busy Hand Quilts for Finished or Not Friday!

This was quilt #6 on my American Patchwork & Quilting Goal list.  I posted on facebook here.
