Americana Celebration

Here is my first Finish It Up project for the weekend. It's my Project Quilting Challenge quilt, I'm calling it Americana Celebration. This week's Project Quilting challenge theme is Stars Over America, so I of course went with traditional patriotic colors (I love doing patriotic quilts!).

I think it looks cute vertical too like a wall banner :) The center stars and circles were cut with my Accuquilt Go, and machine appliqued, and I quilted fun free motion stars and loops in the outer border.

I had to go with a quick project this week, since I have other finishes that I have to get done this week too, so a table runner fit the bill. I'll let you know later in the week when the voting is up for the Project Quilting challenge :)

Hopefully I'll have some more finishes to show you later this weekend!

Enjoy the Day!

Love that red border fabric.

I like designs with stars and designs with circles. The combination of the two is a double treat!

Lovely. Inspirational. Can't wait to make one. Thanks for sharing. Any chance you'd be willing to write a tutorial?

Clicked before I finished my post.

If you are not interested in writing a tutorial, I do hope you'll write a pattern and provide insight on how we can buy a copy. Great design.
