November was the month to make the Whiskey Rebellion flag and three Sawtooth Stars. Hop on over to Lori's Humble Quilts blog to see what others are doing.
Lots of applique on this flag. Rather than having the streamers start at the tip of the beak I moved them down a bit because they were really, really narrow at this point and I wanted to make sure there was enough room to turn the fabric under. After appliqueing the first two stars I figured out a good method for the remaining eleven.
I made a sample block and realized I needed a fabric for the side triangles that was more or less the same value as the main color so off to the quilt shop I went :) The finished block size is 10".
Oops! I got carried away and made all 5 stars so I'm 2 ahead of the game :)
Here is a link to Jan Patek's site so you can see what the finished quilt will look like.
