I received this top via the national organization to quilt.  It's such a simple pattern but creates a beautiful top.  I used a white thread in the blocks and print border, and coordinating threads in the red and blue sashings.  It's 60 x 70.

There are lots of different patriotic, red or blue fabrics for the center squares.
 I quilted an 8-pointed star in these squares, with a hook going into the white corners.

Then they are framed with a red or blue solid fabric. 

I quilted in loopy pattern in these sashings:

The outer border is a patriotic print that I quilted with a simple meander

The backing is a great fireworks pattern:
