A Little Patriotism!

This 1x1 barn quilt, which I made for my wife's cousin, has a patriotic theme to it.   Just in time for the 4th of July.   Hey, that's today!!!  This one is slightly different from the other BQ's that I've made in the past.  Most of the time I will put an edging along the outside of the frame, either 1/4" or 1/8".  If I don't apply an edging, I will usually bring the entire pattern to the edge.  If you will notice, the star pattern is set back, about a 1/2" from the edge.  I liked this so much that, if the client is not specific or doesn't want it like that, I may incorporate it into future designs.
