Whoop- Whoop! I finished my Red, White and Blue Flimsy

Ok, here's the red, white and blue quilt top I showed earlier this week.  I had enough blue/white star sashing fabric to go around the outside of the blocks.  I then went into my stash to look for border fabric.  I pulled out several reds and blues but came across this fabric. I have used this blue star fabric in a few of my quilts and I love this fabric. I have enough left of this to bind this quilt with and maybe make some pillowcases.  I have another red/white/blue quilt to make so I will wait and see how much fabric I need for it before I use this up...Here's the quilt top all together ready for quilting.  I already know how it's going to be quilted. I want stars all over it, I just have to find the right pantograph and then it'll be finished completely.  I am very happy with this quilt.  I'll have to decide on a name for it too.  Any suggestions?

Here's a closeup of the blue star fabric I used on the border... I love this fabric.  I bought almost a whole bolt of this a few years ago and I have a little bit left over.  I'll  decide what I'm going to do with this later  as I have another RWB quilt to put together.

I've been playing around with the thesaurus for words similar to "traditional" and "classic" because I consider those blocks to be represented by both words. "Time-honored" came up, so here's what I've come up with:

"Time-honored Pride"

or how 'bout just....


Regardless of the name you have to honor your quilt, the top turned out quite beautifully.

thanks so much for the link to your quilt! I was thinking of doing a piano keys border. I wasn't sure what it was called. I think I will do it not quite as wide as yours but the picture is a big help! Hopefully I have enough fabric. I don't think I want to brave doing the prairie points. Maybe I will try that on a smaller project first. I do love how they look though. Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I loved seeing what you have been working on too!!!

Very elegant quilt!! I'm always drawn to the red/white/blue quilts. They look so clean or something.

Sarah Craig said...

I just love this quilt!!! Your borders are perfect - - - and I think I would call it "Stars In My Eyes". Thanks for linking up - whoop whoop!!! Good work!

Candace said...

What a stunner! I think I'd call it "American Pride" but all the suggestions have been good.

Linda said...

It is awesome--Love It!!-I like the name "American Pride" that Candace suggested. I need to pullout my Amy's BOM and work on it also. I kept up until August or Sept. --You have given me a nudge to get busy!
