Creative Quilters, I’d like to introduce you to Stars & Stripes, the June pattern update to our year-long color-of-the-month series.
June’s featured color is blue, a perennial favorite with quilters of all styles. Stars & Stripes shows you how to coordinate different blues while avoiding an over-matched appearance. Discover how to coordinate varying color intensities, from dark and deep to bright and light, and make them sing together in a beautiful harmony. You’ll also learn the secrets of why the traditional red, white, and blue color palette works, and what you can do to make it your own. Subscribers to the enhanced e-pattern series get exclusive access to a video tutorial on how to apply the rick-rack that you can follow along with as you apply your own, especially around those tricky corners.

If you can’t get to the quilt shop to select your own fabrics, no worries. I’m offering a Stars & Stripes kit as well. It’s best to choose your own fabrics for your color palettes, but we all have those times when life gets too busy and we just can’t get to it. I’d rather you be able to do the lesson with a kit than not at all.

Learn by Doing
In addition to learning the latest color techniques, you learn how to create harmony among the three blocks which are different and unique: the Mock Eight-Pointed Star block gives you the set-in look without the set-in seams, while the original Rick-Rack Old Glory block provides unity, harmony, and contrast.
Learn New Techniques
Jumbo red rick-rack provides a whimsical finish to Stars & Stripes, and I show you how to apply the rick-rack so that the corners turn with ease and the start/finish point is invisible.
Forget quilt as desired! I’ve included quilting designs, the very ones I used in my own project, that make Stars & Stripes really shine. The quilting is the finishing touch that unifies all the design elements in the runner, and it’s super easy. No free-motion needed!
