A patriotic finish

just in time for fall. 

This pattern, Whirl-A-Jig an Iowa Star Design, was offered by Connecting Threads as a kit last summer using their American Celebration fabrics.

It combines two of my favorite elements....pinwheels and squares that from a diagonal design.   Being in patriotic fabrics was a bonus.

The backing fabric from the same line was just right. 

The thing I usually like about Connecting Threads fabrics...besides the price...is that they have a little more body so are very easy to handle and piece. 

I have several fall projects I hope to get at soon.  First I have my regular block of the months to work up and maybe a project in limbo to pull out.  We'll see. 

Happy stitching.



  1. Oh...I love this!! The pattern is awesome and the patriotic fabrics are perfect for it! Great job!

  3. Oh, that is so perfectly patriotic and pretty, Pam!!
