The 4th of July is getting close. Let’s celebrate with stars!
The original American flag had just 13 stars—one for each state, and we’ve added a star with every new state.
Imagine those poor flag makers. Just as they mastered one design, they’d get the news: “Hold up, everyone! Kentucky is now a state! Start unpicking, and rearrange your stars!”
(Sometimes the layout was changed every single year. That’s a lot of star shuffling!)
This week we’re stitching up a Star Sashed Nine-Patch in patriotic shades of red, white, and blue. It’s a quick and easy jelly roll pattern made with 9-patches, 4-patches, and snowballed sashing. Put ‘em all together, and a sea of dazzling stars appears like magic. No fuss, no muss!
