Patriotic Ensemble

I am working on a 5 piece ensemble to show off my patriotic decor.  I've got 4 pieces finished.  I forgot to photograph 2 of them, so that will have to be shared tomorrow.  These are all small items.

This is a buffet (table) runner. It began as a bucket list challenge on my favorite yahoo group, Cbees.  The challenge this month is seminole piecing. Fortunately, the seminole piecing I chose was large enough to account for the center of the runner.  I just had to add narrow borders.

This next piece is a 14 inch square mini quilt. It hangs on my table top wire frame.  I saw the block on the internet, re-drew it in EQ and printed the star out at 10 inches for paper piecing.

It's been a long time since I've posted, but I've been very busy.  LOL   I will be back tomorrow with a few more patriotic pieces to share.

I wish you all a blessed day.  Thank you for visiting!


  1. The mini star is my favorite! I'll have to see if I can draft one in EQ!

  2. looks great to bad I'm a Canadian :-) nah just kidding I love being Canadian. Love the piece though.

  3. It would be easy to convert to the maple leaf flag, Ellen. I miss Canada. I lived there for 19 years and it's still a part of me.
