Two Tip Tuesday – R-W-B

Happy day after Fourth of July!  Have you made a Red – White – Blue quilt?  I have made several.  I have a couple in the works to give to Quilts of Valor.  I really need to focus on getting them done!  Several years ago I did a workshop for one of my guilds on making a sawtooth star in R-W-B’s.  A simple pattern is all you need!

My 4-3-2-1-Done by Starlight is a super easy pattern and would be a great Quilt of Valor.  You can purchase the pattern on my website.


#1- Make a quilt for a soldier, veteran or donate to Quilts of Valor or another organization that gives quilts to our military!

Done by Starlight is a simple block and easy to quilt by taking the lead of the appliqué star.  Instant fireworks!

When I am taking or teaching a quilt workshop, I often pull out my R-W-B fabrics for class.  I don’t have to fuss over choosing fabrics.  And when the quilt is done, it is given to someone who has served our country.

#2- Want to try a new quilt or technique? Choose Red-White-Blue fabrics!


I realize I have readers from all over the globe…and many of you have similar national colors!

in quilting,
