Recently in Quilts for Wounded Warriors Category

Windham Fabrics has a free pattern called "America Lives On", which is the right width for our Quilts for Wounded Warriors. These quilts fit stretchers, which are 48" x 78". The pattern is 48" x 56", so it just needs to be lengthened approximately 22". This could easily be done by adding another row and then expanding the top and bottom borders. I haven't tried the pattern but it looks like a good way to use up stash, and the star blocks could also be substituted with other fabrics, or even embroidered blocks.
