Flags of the American Revolution Quiltalong: Eagle Block

I am participating in Lori's Flags of the American Revolution Quiltalong. What fun! I have at least 6 ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War and thought this was a great way to honor them. 

  

This will be the first time making a quilt designed by Jan Patek. And the first time for trying out a more primitive style. Already I made some changes--the fabrics I used for the eagle and the red print triangles are a bit darker and more vibrant.   Can't wait to get started on the next step which will be a flag or two, or three . .  :)

  1. Looking good! I'm doing mine with wool on cotton. Like you I have never done any Jan Patek patterns, doing it as a sew along makes it so much more fun don't you think? Happy Sewing
