Small Quilt Sew Along - Patriotic Stars Quilt

Today we kicked off the Small Quilt Sew Along for the six small quilts in my book Schoolgirl Sampler. We'll be starting with this one, the Patriotic Stars quilt on page 26 of the book.

Patriotic Stars quilt made by Sue Bennett

Each month we'll have a theme. The theme for the first month is:  Make a quilt with patriotic blocks or fabrics or make a row quilt using different blocks in red, white and blue fabrics. I thought this would be a great quilt to start with so it could be ready to display on or around the Fourth of July. 

The Schoolgirl Sampler Sew Along Facebook group will be making all six of the small quilts from the book.  One per month. I hope some of you will join us.  The directions for the blocks to make the small quilts are in the book.


I know this is going to be a lot of fun. If you want to purchase a book, check your local quilt shop, Amazon, Martingale or other online shops for copies.  Check my website or Etsy shop for signed copies
