Stars Stripes Quilt Tutorial

The first 2 pictures are the block I call Stars and Stripes. Neither of these pictures had links to additional information. The first picture has notes showing cut sizes for the fabrics. These cuts make a 12″ block using 4-patches, flying geese and squares.











I chose to make a 16″ block and use strip piecing. Here are the instructions I wrote. This makes a quilt about 64″ x 80″ finished. There are 20 blocks.
