Some Patriotic Red, While and Blue Stars

I've been collecting red, while and blue fabrics for a patriotic themed quilt. Fourth of July celebrations inspired me to try some star blocks. I follow Allison Harris' blog called Cluck Cluck Sew. She has some excellent tutorial posts on her blog. The patriotic stars in the picture were made using her star tutorial. So far I've finished 6 stars and have 2 more cut and ready to sew together. I need 48 blocks for a nice sized quilt and 8 stars is a good start. This patriotic quilt is for a young man, my son, that served in the Army for 6 years. I'll work on this project some each week until it's completed. I want to give the quilt to him in November.
Thank you, Allison.

I love stars. These blocks are so cool. I have followed Allison for years too. She does magical things! And she's a nice person too!

You just can't go wrong with red, white, and blue! Your stars look great and I'm sure the young man will appreciate it. Good luck!

Beautiful blocks, and a huge Thank You to your son. My grandson is in the army now and about to head to Germany with his family for 3 years.
