Note from Peggy: People who are not using the templates as such for the Fireworks project have asked for a full sized line drawing (“Foundation”, in paper piecing terms) so here that is too.
Plus a piecing sequence guide. FOUNDATION PATTERN
Turn it sideways and it has a different look…
Oh well…it was more than 200 years ago…

NOTES FROM PEGGY
The pattern is a little different this time in that it is a mostly symmetrical pattern. I have chosen to just give the 6 templates for one of the eight wedges. All the wedges are the same, except some must have lines extended, and some will be chopped off if used in the “flag” configuration. This means there are only a few sheets of templates rather than oodles more.
NOTES FROM LORI
Thank you, Peggy, this is gorgeous! I could also see this in red and green-like a Christmas present with a big bow and ribbons…
Tuesday–We’re going “off the rails” with our free motion quilt tutorial this week–no drawn lines to guide us as we learn a new all-over or “fill” pattern.
A Challenge–The rest of the week–I have challenged myself to work in a series. Each day- a new small quilt with a patriotic theme…I think you will enjoy this…
PLEASE JOIN ME!
Start with an 8 inch by 8 inch piece of red, white or blue fabric and create a design with free motion quilting. (My projects range in size from 6″ x 8″ to 22″ square…) One a day—no UFOs!
Can’t resist a (sewing) challenge,
