BIG Prints Series #4

Patriotic Text fabrics happens to be what I used this time for my BIG print series.

Now I have a flimsy 60 x 75! 

I've been trying to use some of the BIG prints that have been lingering in the stash for awhile.  This is the fourth flimsy in the series using the Double Sawtooth block at Quilter's Cache- perfect for BIG prints with the 9.5 inch center square. 

This time I mixed things up while making the top and I changed the orientation of HSTs on alternate blocks. 

I've been trying to use up all of my holiday fabrics and I consider the patriotic prints as holiday fabrics in my stash. I scraped the bottom of the barrel to be able to have enough of the text prints for the centers. 

One block had to have a symbol instead of text. 

And so now my patriotic print box (banker box size) is finally almost empty. 

And as far as BIG prints go I think I will make one more for this series. I'll leave you wondering what that BIG print will be.

Hmm, I have half a patriotic layer cake sitting around. I wonder if this would work for it. I am in need of making another veteran quilt. Thanks for sharing.

You found the perfect pattern for using up your patriotic stash. I am adding this to my inspiration list. I had won a stack of patriotic fabric fat quarters, some of which were prints that could not be cut small without losing the patriotic theme.

Another great Big Print flimsy. As for the flimsy- either Light florals or Ballerinas is my guess.

That is a really great design for those patriotic text prints! I like the alternating star points, too.

Excellent solution for the BIG print challenge, Cathy, as they can be SEW hard to use!!
