Celebrate Old Glory

Well hello everyone! I am so pleased to finally be able to share this pattern with you. You may remember back in 2014 I had my very first Craftsy kit. It was quite popular and I got plenty of emails asking when just the pattern would be available. Enough time has finally gone by (plus some bonus time because, you know life happens) and I have FINALLY formatted Celebrate Old Glory as a Stacey Day Quilts pattern! Yay!

Celebrate Old Glory!

This quilts started out as a QDAD design, done on Memorial Day 2014. The inspiration photo was, you guessed it, an iconic antique American Flag. I created the block using my Electric Quilt 7 program, and I love the result. It really has a fun, celebratory movement to it. I love bringing a QDAD to reality!

As with any pattern, don’t feel limited to the suggested colors. I know this would be stunning with some flashy rainbow stars, or having the spin in a single hue ombre.

Thank you!

I also want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your readership and support! Without my fellow quilters, I wouldn’t have anyone to share my work with. And really, that’s what it’s all about, being able to share my love of quilting with other like-minded individuals. So, THANK YOU!

Happy Stitching!

Officially a Craftsy Designer!

Woo hoo!!

A couple months ago I submitted a design for the Red, White, and Free collection by Sandy Gervais for Moda. To my surprise and delight, it was accepted and I was able to turn it into a pattern. The nice people over at Craftsy liked it and turned it into a quilt kit! WOW!!

Presenting Celebrate Old Glory!

I love how it turned out! All those stars and squares swirling around! The fabric was a lot of fun to work with too! Vibrant colors, and fun prints that didn’t overwhelm each other. I really like the flag print on the back, don’t you?

I quilted it using an all over meandering swirl. I chose a taupe thread, which blended nicely with the fabrics and let them take center stage. The binding is actually a panel that I cut on the diagonal. It made for an interesting binding that didn’t overwhelm the quilt.

I am really over the moon about this quilt! You can get your kit here. It is an intermediate quilt, but if you are a confident beginner and take your time, I think you will be just fine! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @staceyinstitches and upload a picture of your finished quilt to my Flickr group, Stacey Day Quilts!

Thank you!

Thank you!

Happy Stitching!
