Star Spangled Banner Day 7

LAST DAY OF MY STAR SPANGLED BANNER EXTRAVAGANZA!

Tomorrow is the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner and I hope you'll be able to catch some of the celebrations via the internet or television.

Constitution Oak by Debby Kratovil - 64" x 64"
Constitution Oak is another quilt I designed for Windham Fabrics. It uses reproduction coverlet fabrics which are some of my absolute favorite fabrics because of the motifs. You can easily make this in any colorway. This is our FREE PATTERN during my Star Spangled Banner Extravaganza this week.

Let me show you a few other quilts with the red, white and blue theme:

Farmhouse Stars (from Supersize 'em Quilts)



Another Free Pattern from Windham Fabrics:

Liberty Dance
Liberty Dance by Maria Tavy Umhey - 50" x 50"
Last day for FREE fabrics (I'm going 7 for 7!)

DAY 7 CONTEST:

1. The contest is over at midnight tonight, September 13, 2014 (EST). No more contests. I'm out of fabric and out of town!

2. Fabrics  can only be mailed in the United States.

3. If I randomly select someone from outside the United States, you can have ANY of my patterns from my Craftsy site. I will email them to you (obviously, the ones that are for sale).

4. If I don't have your email, I can't notify you! Anonymous bloggers can't win!

Do you like working with reproduction fabrics, and if so, from what historic era?

THANK YOU for joining me for the entire week. I hope that you've enjoyed seeing the quilts, hearing from Jane Hampton Cook, getting a glimpse of what Mimi Dietrich and the Maryland Historical Society did in making a replica flag, and all the other bits and pieces of history.

I enjoyed giving away the fabric. If you're not  a follower, I hope you'll consider becoming one (via Bloglovin' or email) so you can get more free patterns, see more of my quilts (and those of other quilters) and join in on the occasional giveaways I have.

  1. We used the Liberty Dance pattern to make QOV for local gifting. I love Civil War prints and 30's prints.

  2. I love repro's from the 1930's. I think most people think of quilts made from these prints, when they hear the word "quilt" and that's the type of quilt I first fell in love with.

  5. I've never used reproduction fabrics but love seeing projects made from them and think they would be perfect for anything I make for my grands because they add a little history into the gift and the kids love learning about the 'olden days.' :)

  6. Dearly love my repros. I flip from 1860-s to Civil War. It's the florals, then it's the smooth colors. Who can choose?

  21. Thanks for a wonderful week of posts! I have enjoyed all the quilts you've shown, and thinking about this important 200th birthday. I posted about it myself this morning. Thanks for a chance to win this great fabric by Benartex! I do use reproduction fabrics, a lot of Civil War, and slightly less of the last quarter 1700s-first quarter 1800s. I just love the colors and the fabrics. Some people call them muddy, but I don't see it that way! dezertsuz at gmail

  22. I do love reproduction fabrics (actually, I love all fabrics). Right now I am making a friendship quilt using 1930's repro fabrics, but I also really like the civil war repro fabrics. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

  23. I love all types of fabrics, from repros to batiks. Some designs just work better with reproductions. I'm currently collecting 30s prints, but have Civil War collections, too.

  24. I love fabrics of all genre. I would hate to miss out on working with a certain fabric just because I don't use that era. CDahlgren at live dot com

  25. I don't care for repro fabrics. I prefer the pure, vibrant colors over muddy colors. But one can always find a use for fabric! Thank you for the fabulous giveaways all week!!

  26. I've only used '30's prints, but like the Civil War, too.
    Thanks, Debby for a very interesting week! I had to use a library in Charlestown, RI and fight to get on at a motel on Long Island, but it's been worth it! Happy Quilting to all!

  27. I love reproduction fabrics. I don't know much about the eras, but my favorites are, I think, the civil war era. I like soft or dark colors and tiny florals. Thanks for these giveaways. It's been interesting checking in to see what you post every day. sarah@forrussia.org
