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:
