American Flag Quilt - Set 1 Complete!

Hi y'all!  I wanted to pop in and show you the first blocks that I completed for the American Flag quilt.  Just so you know, I'm basing these on the state block patterns that are floating around the internet.  I am drafting them in EQ so I can paper piece them to the size I want.  These are my Indiana blocks (pattern available in this blog post).

First up, my blue block.  I'm making one of each for a total of 50 and it will finish at 3".


Next are my white Indiana blocks.  I made two of these:


And finally, my red blocks.  Since this was a pretty easy block, I decided to make three of this one. 


The red and white blocks will finish at 4".  Here they are together.


Next up are my Louisiana blocks.  You can find the blue and white pattern here and the red and white pattern here.  Again, a pretty easy block so I'll be making 2 of them in white and 3 in red.  We'll need 50 blue and white blocks (of course!), 93 white on white blocks and 104 red on red blocks, so pick the easier ones or your favorite ones to make an extra red and the harder ones to make less white. :)

Again, here's what we are going for:


Really enjoying this one and working at a non-rushed pace!

Wow, I've been missing a lot while I was in school! I need to go back and read because this looks like an amazing project.

I love this pattern. I have always intended to make a flag quilt, but haven't had time yet, but I will!!
