Here is the beginning of my newest quilt! I have always wanted a patriotic themed quilt and I decided on this pattern. The whole thing is made up of triangles which makes it easy. And the good thing is that if I have any left over triangles I can make a table runner or save them for a scrap quilt for later. It is a common size used in a lot of quilt patterns. I cut 3 7/7 in strips, cut those strips into 3 7/8 in squares, and finally cut those triangles in half. You can pick any colors for this pattern and rearrange the triangles any way you like. This is just how I chose to do it this time.
