Celebrating the Red, White and Blue!

I LOVE decorating for the holidays.  I have at least one box of decorations for every holiday.  I most especially love to make wall hangings and I woke up feeling inspired to get something done for me today.  So here it is.  My modern take on celebrating the Red, White and Blue.

This is one giant granny square.   I used the tutorial on Blue Elephant Stitches that you can find here.

I happened to have dozens of red charm squares from a charm swap that I participated in with the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild.  I used the blue and white from my stash.  I love that it looks festive without being too over the top in your face 4th of July.  

Have to say that I love the back.  I used the gray blocks from Half Moon Modern.  The completed wall hanging is about 18 inches square.

I had a blast making this and it went together quickly.  Love a short, sweet and complete project!


  1. That is awesome! Love that the red is scrappy but not the blue.

  2. Thank you Shanley! I was super excited to utilize my red charms!
