Thanks to Arlene Zobrist for this guest post!
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.
